About this design:

Lovely coin pearls, I couldn't pass them up at the last bead show I went to, even though there were at the top of my budget limit! Use LB's Artistic Wire to make the swirls & ear wires.

Components:

pearls, wire

    The pearls definitely look like they were worth the money, Cindy, and your spirals are the perfect way to frame them. Great earrings !

    Yowza Cindy. These are beautiful,and so creative. It would never enter my head to wrap a coin as a briolette. You’re a genius. Did you use one long piece of wire to do the whole design?
    Oh,and your own ear wires? You go girl!(Standing ovation!) ;)

    Yes, Nancy, one long piece of wire. Not my original idea, but a take on something I saw in an old jewelry book (with some gemstones). I seem to be out of gold-toned earwires, so I had to make some.

    I am working on something else with these pearls, they are so darn pretty!

    Really pretty and elegant. Just goes to show that a lot of stuff isn’t necessary when you have good design!
