Melons in the Sun

About this design:

I thought the mix of these Malaysia melon jade and the Swarovski sun crystals would be bright and summery. I added matching jade and crystals to the ear wires.


4mm Malaysia melon jade, Swarovski 5301 sun crystals in 5mm and 4mm sizes, 15x13mm pewter chandelier, .925 sterling silver ear wires

    Love seeing all the orange out there this spring. Didn’t like it at first, but it’s starting to grow on me. Your earrings are right in style now…very fresh!
