Ear Wired-Up

About this design:

Today was a good day for me. Lots of ideas and some even turned out pretty good. :D

Not sure what that first pair is, the drop with black and blue, but I liked the stone. The 2nd are LB Czech Crystals wired to 18g gold parawire. Last pair - wired hearts - I made for a friend. She saw my heart pendant like this, but wanted earrings. I made the frame and ear wires from 16g silver parawire (LB), and used pink 26g wire to fill it with crystals and pearls.


Parawire, craft wire, crystals, fres water pearls

    :) Thank you for all the nice words!

    Those first ones, I wish I knew what they were because I got them on a strand at a bead show, they were all different pastel colors. More of those to come. Might be some sort of agate. The other thing about them is they are not the same size…one is shorter! So I did the big wire wrap at the top to make up for it. The joy of “messy” wrapping.

    Don’t know if it’s the photo or my eyes going bad, but the first piece looks to me like water enclosed in a force field. They are all great, but that one really caught my imagination.
