    I am so glad you approve! :) Actually it goes more with the Pearlescence necklace in beads but the octopus in style. I’d wear them with either. Your opinion means a lot to me because I love your freespirited style! :)

    I love long earrings, but my ears are weird about too much weight, so I’m glad they’re not heavy. The abalone is so pretty with the pearls. There’s a feeling of flight–lots of movement. These would be fun to wear.

    Very pretty and shimmery and dangly. Abalone is just so lovely….it.looks really good with the pearls.

    Oh and you were much harder on yourself about that necklace than you should have been. We all said it was pretty and all said to just change the FW pearls side.

    Thanks, Deb, but to me it was a disaster. :) I was hoping you guys could help me out and you did! That one side just didn’t work and I was messing with it for at least 2 days trying to keep from starting over which is what I should have just done right away. It was supposed to be a quick, easy project to use up those stones and it grew into a monster.

    Becky, love these earrings! I haven’t gotten the knack of the long danglies yet. Yours are beautiful with the pearls and abalone!

    Thanks, Susie! I love danglies and I wear them all the time. I used to have long hair and it hid them a lot but a year ago I cut it very short and now my earrings swing all over the place! :)

    What could be better than abalone and pearls? They were made for each other and you have made a terrific pair of ear rings with them. :)
