CZ is a Girl's Second Best Friend.


About this design:

Have had these "topaz" colored CZ teardrops for a long time. I finally decided to do some dangles. I was inspired by the late afternoon September sun. Yellow looks different in every kind of light.

Components:

Faceted Cubic Zirconia teardrops,7 mm long,I think..SP craft wire,SP jump rings and silver filled ear wires.

    Thank you,ladies. they’re pretty beads,aren’t they? Elis Mom..I truly appreciate your comment about my wraps.SP is a bit hard to use than SS,so it’s nice to read that. ;)

    What a pretty color! I love the staggered look and I hear you about the SP being harder to work with but your wraps do look great.

    Thanks so much,Chicks.Wishing SS wasn’t so expensive. It’s so much more obedient. I found some “new” wire that’s 999 fine silver plated,over brass that’s non tarnish. It’s a little easier to work with,but I still talk to it,if ya know what I mean. ;)

    Nancy, Have you tried the “silver-filled” wire? It’s much less expensive and it acts a lot like the silver wire. Now if I could only remember where I got it……

    Hiya Whimsy..they do catch the light. Like mini sun catcher for the lobes.LOL ;)
    Gail.I have gotten some SF ear wires. I’m going to try ordering some for wraps.It just makes me crazy when wire springs back,and I can’t get the “tail” to crimp. Thank you.

    I love these! The color is beautiful, especially in the one picture where they look two toned color. Your second image kinda looks like there is a hint of pink in them. Gorgeous Nancy!

    P.S. Love your name also!
