Tequila Sunrise

About this design:

The start of this project were these great handmade lampwork from Charlotte at With their juicy orange and a hint of yellow I knew that the Swarovski fire opal would be the perfect match. When it was together it reminded me of the tequila sunrise drink from back in the day (for those who remember) :-)


10mm handmade apricot orange lampwork, Swarovski 5301 fire opal crystals, .925 sterling silver earring blanks, .925 sterling silver beads

    Orange is my favorite color! I grew up with tangerine colored walls in my bedroom and everything orange! Pairing those handmade lampworks with the fire opal crystals was a perfect match! I love these! :)

    Oh my goodness, Kat …. I just got done making a bracelet last night that is a great compliment to these earrings. I’ll have to post it for you. I haven’t been on Lima in awhile (no $$) but I thought I’d check out what was fresh today ….when scrolling down I saw your earrings. I had to stop and make a comment…They are terrific!
