Ethnic pewter drops

About this design:

This is my first attempt at posting a design on the Lima beads website, I have made these earrings for myself but will be copying it with different colour beads, I love the simplicity and mottled shades of the the aged Czech beads, these are going to be a favourite!!
The large aqua bead in the centre had a very wide hole so to stop it wobbling about I packed it with random seed beads, other than that it was a very easy pair of earrings to make - love them!

    Very pretty and look like they came directly from a street artisan in Greece.

    Andrea P-D, If I wore ear rings I’d definitely wear these. This is such a versatile design that it can go any where, be worn with any thing and look great in any color combination. Welcome to the gallery!
