Layered Glass Drop Earrings


About this design:

I've always loved how layered earrings like these hang. One extra chain link for each new bead as they grow in size. I finished the design with my own handmade earwire.

Components:

Stained Glass Window Bead Mix, Vintaj Natural Brass Fancy Oval Chain, Vintaj Natural Brass Eye Pin, Vintaj Natural Brass Headpin
