Red African Earrings

About this design:

Been scratching my head trying to figure out how to make some larger, longer earrings. I rarely make earrings, so my mission is to make more during the next few months. Found some old enamel drops & tried to work them into a design.


Mexican Red Snowflake Jasper (LB), African Krobo Powder Glass Red Discs (LB), Brass wavy spacers, Patina Brass Water Wheel Barrels (LB), repurposed enamel drops.

    These are great Crystal!! I love them not only because there so red…the shape is just wonderful!! I would wear these in a heartbeat. Red looks good with gray/silver hair…which I have. Fantastic! Looking forward to seeing more earrings from you!

    These are great Crystal! I love the snowflake Jasper(and most all other jasper). The patina barrels gives nice contrast. I always look forward to your designs.

    All of your kind comments were a nice surprise this morning. Thank you! Making earrings is a huge struggle for me. After decades of wearing pixie hair, I’m at a loss with it past my shoulders. Making earrings is on the top of my list. But I’m sure I’ll get distracted along the way! Have a great day everyone :)

    Your design is outstanding! Love the vermilion/red with the snowflake jasper and brass water wheel barrels. These ear rings are wonderful and would be impossible to ignore!

    You really found the same color in the drops and the krobo discs, and reds are usually so hard to match. Like they were meant to be together. And the rest of the components look great with them. Very successful design!

    Thanks again everyone! Your kind words have given me the courage to try bigger & bolder earring designs. :)

    Merilee, thanks for taking the time to comment on my earrings. With the red color, they can be seen–might be a tad bold for me. I guess I’m stepping out of my comfort zone!
