Scarlet Tears

About this design:

I said it has been the year of the teardrops for me, so here's another set. Every time I want to wear red or a piece of red jewelry I can't find any because I rarely make anything with red beads/stones. Everything is usually blue!
Well, this is simple & stunning and RED! Finally!


Celestial Crystal Red faceted teardrops 18x12mm & 15x10mm, 6mm crystal AB rounds, Silver chain, jumprings, wire & hook & eye clasp

    Holy cow,that’s beautiful! So elegant and simple,but really makes a statement. Are the red beads glass or crystal? It’s an awesome design,I like the way the teardrops lay against the body! The earrings are just right.
    I’m just starstuck by this set. Rubies and Diamonds,eat your hearts out. ;)

    Thanks, Nancy. Your comments are always cheerful and make me smile! :) the teardrops are glass. I took about 16 pictures of the earrings, the picture made them seem brown. I’m glad this picture finally did them justice! Whew!

    Thanks for the info,Jennifer. They sure are nice quality glass! Gotta get some. Can I also say you did excellent work with your simple loops? Sometimes,they can be more work than wrapped,when you’re concentrating to keep them uniform. Eyestrain city. ;)
