    This pair of earrings is beautiful. I love the spiral and way you set the pearls right in the center.

    You are all too sweet for words! Many thanks! :D

    The tubing is a little difficult to work with, but oh so rewarding when it comes together!

    Sweet Chick, I TOLD you they were geeky! Sulfinert is a coating for steel to prevent sulfur compounds from sticking to the steel – kind of like teflon coated pans! (hmmmm…guess I couldn’t oxidize these even if I wanted to, huh? LOS wouldn’t stick! LOL!)
