Glow Faceted Dangles

About this design:

I created these shimmering earrings with 12mm Opalite faceted teardrops... I love the way the light catches with every move. Sparkly. Shimmery. Goodness.... I had been holding on to these beads for too long... it was their time to shine...

    These are beautiful. I think the faceting of the Opalite also shows it off well.

    Thanks everyone!!! sorry it has been a few days since I have been on here.
    For my long earwires I use 20 gauge wire.
    To hang the Opalite bead I used 24 gauge.
