About this design:

I put together these simple dangle earrings with a few of the LB black rustic quartz diamonds I had left from the strand, after I designed the last piece I posted (diamonds and rust.) They're so basic, I could probably wear these every day...except for the fact that I sold them yesterday to a co-worker. :)

Components:

Textured silver discs, rustic black quartz from Lima Beads.
