Asymmetrical Drop Earrings

About this design:

I really like the new shapes of African brass and how they play so well together. I wanted share the idea that you can make a pair of earrings more interesting by making one slightly different using the same components.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

You will need 2 African polished rice beads in the 4-6x4-4.5mm & 10-12-x6-8mm, 2 Coiled brass rice beads, ear wire, 3" head pins, and 4mm faceted turquoise magnesite.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

    Andrea, I like the idea of keeping the beads the same, but adjusting the visual by flipping one of the earrings over then attaching to the ear wires. Unique & unexpected ‘matching’ pair!
