I have been experimenting with chain and crystals...what do you think? I wasn't sure as I was making them, but I think I like them now-I'd like to hear your opinions though!

This is a pic of them laying flat. There are 4 diff shades of purple crystals.


Here are some yellow ones too. These have gemstone briolettes as well as crystals.

Thanks!! :-)

Thanks!

I had seen some similar earrings on another site, and decided to give them a try! They both actually look really cute w/jeans too!

The purple ones must have taken quite some time to make!
The wrapping is very lovely; are you new to wire wrapping?
I would wear them!  Wink

Thank You both!

Actually, they don't really take me that long to make. I think the purple one's took about 45 min start to finish.

I've been making jewelry for over 10yrs...so I'm not really new to this type of wire wrapping. (I am very new to wrapping pendants though!!) I do like to wrap them a little differently--I like the loops to be a little imperfect instead of super round. I think it adds a little more character.

Here's a picture of the purple ones on to show how they hang:


And here's a close up of the yellow ones-You can see how on the crystals, I made a spiral at the bottom of them.


By the way...I've been making these kinds of earrings all day!! They're so fun and I really like them. I know have 7 pairs in all different colors.

Wow! Thank you!  Tongue  Like I said, I've been making jewelry for quite some time, so I've got the basics down...it's just a matter of trying new things!

I'd be more than happy to list the steps I use later today. I have to run off to a quick meeting for work, so I'll do it in a few hours!
