I made a set of earrings with a matching necklace for my sister-in-law's birthday later this month. Only problem is, I don't want to give them away! I love them too much. Cheesy

I don't blame you, they're gorgeous! Love them and I'm jealous of you're sis-in-law lol. I think the green and black go together so perfectly. What is the black cording you used to string them?

Looks like black wire, right?

I love the color combination.  Very striking.

Thank you all! I am making a set for myself in purple (I ran out of crimp beads, and won't be able to get to the bead shop until Tuesday), because I love these so much.

The black cord is Tiger Tail - a coated wire. It comes in all sorts of colours. I have my eye on some bronze-y coloured beads with a khaki/green thread too...

They look great Giff.  Better hurry up with that purple set so you can choose which one you like best Wink

Those are absolutely GORGEOUS!  Can't say I blame you for wanting to keep them.  But now that you have made them once...you can make them again for yourself in another colour, right?

Man, they're beautiful.  Forget your SIL, *** I *** want them. Wink
