About this design:

A little gift for a close friend who isn't feeling well. She likes bright color,and she loves jewelry that goes "ching a ling" and "rattle rattle." These earrings fit that bill for sure. I wore them for about 1/2 hour and went nuts,but they're pretty,and I know she will love them.

Components:

GP connectors,ear wires,and jump rings,GF 22G eye pins,and spacers. Gold tone coins from a hobby store,Labradorite faceted rounds 8mm,Carnelian faceted rounds 8mm,Carnelian faceted ovals 12ish mm?

    At 72 and (half ?) deaf – I’d love the tinkle jangle of them – LOL. I’ve got some of those coins in silver, same size. Might make me a pair

    Oh yeah! These will make a most satisfactory “ching-a-ling” for a devoted noisy jewelry fan! (I’m one too) Especially love the round carnelians in the middle, they look like maraschino cherries!
