Wisam's Choice

About this design:

An exotic girlfriend from Iraq was having a birthday, and I made these to go with a wild pair of green and blue zebra striped strap shoes she got on sale. She loved these. I made them long and wider at the bottom because she has a long narrow neck and chin bone. Her long dark curly hair shows off the bright colors in the beads and silver.


These earrings are made with great silver designer beads I found on sale and a pair of green yellow jade oval beads combined with smaller round blue lapis. I repeated the silver color between the two colored beads to give more unity to the design. Because the large bead is hollow, it is lightweight.
