Picasso Earrings

About this design:

I chose the last two relatively "blue" piece of Picasso jasper left from Dan's necklace and the bracelet I made, and did a little fancier wire-wrapping with them since they're relatively bland and murky. I didn't have antique copper wire, but I think the silver works okay.

    The wrapping looks great on those beads. I never saw barrels wrapped like that but it looks fantastic.
