I made these recently for the Bead Soup swap for my recipient.  It is a set made with clustered hand wrapped freshwater pearls hanging on a hand forged hanger.  A smaller cluster was used for each earring.

I was pretty happy how it turned out, even though it kills my hands to wrap each of those beads - also I had to ream each and every pearl to fit the wire of the headpins through.  I like the spiky look the ball ended headpins give too, rather than the flat ones.

A bit more on my blog post.

Thanks, I love fresh water pearls and how this looks.  I am half tempted to make one for myself, except for the fact that I am a bit sick of wire wrapping all those head pins, and cutting them.
