Citrine Drops


About this design:

Recently purchased a small strand of citrine brios at a very reasonable price. However, I really needed to use my finest brio wire wrapping skills to get these tiny babies attached with 26 gauge sterling.

Components:

sterling silver, citrine brios, garnets, labradorites

    Two great pairs of ear rings, Lynda, and I do love the dainty little citrine brios. Really gorgeous “shiny objects.” :D

    I thought I commented yesterday… maybe I was so in awe I forgot to click submit! :) Your wirework is amazing! I love them both but i think I would choose the one with labradorite if I had to pick. I can just imagine the citrine picking up the yellow essence of the labs.

    Thanks so much for your comments. When you have very simple designs, things like the wire wrappings become a very noticeable part of the piece, so I was nervously trying to get these up to snuff.
