An Exotic Pair

About this design:

Here is another pair of simple ear rings with a fancy chandelier I got from LB. When I first saw the chandelier I thought, "WOW I've got to have that!" So I got them and here they are all finished and ready to wear.

The chandelier has a beautiful exotic surface pattern around the open area that reminds me of a Moroccan design. The beads on the drops are faceted carnelian with dog bone shape gold plate spacers. I didn't have any ear wires that would look right with the design so I made a simple pair of circle ear wires. The chandelier and drops measure 2 inches from the bottom of the ear wires.


My computer and I are currently at odds. It won't display a photo I want and I'm not sure why. I need a full time computer whiz on call. Electronic equipment is not my thing.

Components:

GP chandelier, GP spacers, hand made red brass ear wires, carnelian beads

    LRC, these came out so nice! I am loving the faceted Carnelian, these earrings are great for fall – colorwise, but are great year-round as well. so pretty.

    Definitely a Moroccan vibe! The inner cut of the chandeliers mimics some great architectural features found in that culture. The Carnelian beads were an excellent choice. These will be very fun to wear!

    Such magical earrings! They definitely remind me of the Middle East and Indian architecture.

    I have those chandalier findings too. Bought them a long time ago and haven’t used them yet. They are very pretty. I like what they did with them.

    I can see why you had to buy the chandeliers. And your design with the carnelian beads is so pretty.
