Amber Delight Earrings


About this design:

I have a love for crystals and this amber tear drop crystal spoke to me:)I took 20 gauge silver plated wire and did a rough wrap and finished it with a swirl design.Then I added 4 mm Swarovski crystal called purple haze and wire wrapped them and placed them on the top.

Components:

20 gauge silver plated wire,4 mm Swarovski crystals,Large tear drop fire polished crystal,I make all my own jumprings,silver plated earring wires
