About this design:

I made these earrings after a suggestion from GypsyMom aka my beautiful daughter Chari, she wanted them with smokey quartz drops that she recently picked up at a music festival so this is a trial run with Amethyst... So .. Chari.. is this something like what you had in mind??


Amethyst, Silver wire, Sterling silver ear studs

    Chari will love them – trust me – I have a similar pair of earrings made from copper electrial wire and freshwater pearls and they are totally a “go to” item. Besides, you can’t go wrong with silver and amethyst!!! :)

    Thank you ladies1 I think the spirals could use a little “Tweaking” to get them to hang just right. I am now trying to get another pair to hang as dangles on a necklace.. wish me luck! ;)

    Just be careful to not over-tweak. Remember, these are hand-made coils and they are never going to be “perfect” in the machined since of the word. The imperfections are what make them perfect! Also, another cool thing to try is to partially smash the coils – no 2 coils will come out exactly alike, but you will have some awesome earrings!!! :)
