About this design:

These earrings are so much fun to do.
It's like using twist tie bag closures,and then making a loop. I don't know how I came up with this one,or even if it's orignal.LOL
I'm loving the Long Kidney wires,because you get a really long earring without a lot of wire work.


8mm crystal rondelles,Silver Filled wire 22g,(dead soft),and long Silver over Steel kidney wires.

    Thanks ladies. yes..drama is a good word.They’re very glitzy,but with rustic wraps.
    The crystals are a darker emerald color,from the Hobby Lobby.

    Totally agree with your assessment of the kidney ear wires. Lots of look with very little work…although I love your wire wrapped beads!

    Thanks for your kind words,on this chilly day.
    These wraps are weird,arent’t they ? ;)
    My wires are from another souce,but the blue earrings I did have LB’s Kidney wires,which are nicer. Out of stock right now.
