About this design:

These earrings are so much fun to do.
It's like using twist tie bag closures,and then making a loop. I don't know how I came up with this one,or even if it's orignal.LOL
I'm loving the Long Kidney wires,because you get a really long earring without a lot of wire work.

Components:

8mm crystal rondelles,Silver Filled wire 22g,(dead soft),and long Silver over Steel kidney wires.

    Thanks ladies. yes..drama is a good word.They’re very glitzy,but with rustic wraps.
    The crystals are a darker emerald color,from the Hobby Lobby.

    Totally agree with your assessment of the kidney ear wires. Lots of look with very little work…although I love your wire wrapped beads!

    Fun they are! (My kid’s been watching Star Wars again…) Like the way the wire makes the crystal go rustic!

    Thanks for your kind words,on this chilly day.
    These wraps are weird,arent’t they ? ;)
    My wires are from another souce,but the blue earrings I did have LB’s Kidney wires,which are nicer. Out of stock right now.
    Item 16249,if anyone is interested.
