It's a blue, blue day

About this design:

Made with dark blue rondelles and two black bicones, this pair of earrings are to wear with jeans or dress up.The chandelier findings are from Gem World. Earring hooks are hand made by me with niobium wire. I'm allergic to everything else except gold but niobium works for me. Niobium wire from Bead FX. Just love the swing. Not used to wearing this style but love it anyway.


Niobium wire in blue; blue rondelles, black bicones, silver coloured head pins and eye pins and purchased base metal charms.

    Very nice!!! One of my sisters has become allergic to even gold and niobium thanks to a cartilage piercing that never healed. I might have to give her some more niobium to see if she has calmed down enough to wear it yet since it is supposed to be completely hypoallergenic. I love your design!

    I like the one black bicone in combo with the intense blue. It seems to add sophistication, just the right emphasis for the blue.
