My Birthstone

About this design:

The chandeliers in these ear rings are a vintage design made in brass. The stones are hand cut, faceted citrine tear drops. I really like the color and faceting of the drops but the holes in the center are not precisely placed and gave a bit of trouble getting them to hang right. The ear wires are satin Hamilton gold from LB and are a bit different color than the chandeliers but that's OK because the colors look good together.

Components:

brass chandeliers, faceted citrine drops, metallic gold seed beads, satin Hamilton ear wires

    The Citrine faceted drops really take center stage here & look super with the vintage chandeliers. I really like the golden glow of this pair. Very pretty.

    Subtle and elegant work! Showcases the gorgeous stones. Citrine is often overlooked in jewelry, so I happy to see it highlighted in these earrings.
