Inspired by Gail Layne

About this design:

Ahh,the humble linear earring. Gail's necklace inspired me to use this color combination. I've just bought some high quality Rainbow Flourite,and I think they're lovely. Took these super close up photos,to show the facets and yummy colors.
Thanks for the inspiration,Gail. :)


6MM Faceted Rainbow Flourite,sterling silver findings,and wires.

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these!! (Bet that’s a shocker, huh?)The fluorite is absolutely gorgeous and one of my favorite stones. Maybe we should share custody of the “set”, hmmmm??
    Btw, where in the world did you get those fabulous bead caps?

    P.S. Don’t laugh, but when I caught sight of your title I thought I had done something horribly wrong with my computer and it made my name go in a very wrong place! When I figured out that I hadn’t made the biggest faux pax in the history of the website, I got the biggest kick out of having namesake earrings!!
