Chain Curtain

About this design:

These earrings feature a favorite component of mine: Vintage Preciosa Glass Teardrops. I paired them with Swarovski Crystals and Blue Chalcedony Wire Wrapped Briolettes. These have a lot of movement and remind me of foreign bazaars and exotic locations.

    Beautiful colors. They remind me of hanging glass oil lamps in churches and mosques–maybe that’s the exotic connection.

    Thank you! They do look a bit like that! I kept thinking Arabian Nights and Aladdin, for some reason…I usually just get an idea and start making it, and I’m actually rather pleased with how these came out. =^__^=
