Hi!

Here is the back story on these earrings. I saw earrings very very similar to these in the store and they were $58! So I went to Michael's bought the stuff and made them for a fraction of the cost!

The findings are sterling silver and the beads are swarovski and very sparkly!



Here's one with a quarter so you can see the scale.


I don't make a whole lot of jewelry but I'm pretty psyched I was able to make a pair of earrings for a fraction of the retail price!  Grin

Very nice! I love big earrings. A lot of the fun in making jewelry is in making it so much cheaper than what you can buy it for.

Thanks everyone for your kind words. These earrings are so mobile and just sort of dance around.
