This piece was made with solid copper wire. First the thicker wire for the frame was cut, the ends were heated with a torch to get the little dots. It was then pickled in acid, formed and tumble polished. The amazonite, apatite, Swarovski crystal and copper bead were attached with very thin copper wire. The […]
First I hammered heavy wire into ear wires. Then I wrapped very thin wire around the ear wires, adding in a Swarovski crystal. Then I wire wrapped the carnelian beads and attached them to the ear wires. I tumble polished the finished earrings and oxidized all the copper wire to achieve the black color. Then […]
I made these earrings using sterling silver findings, chandelier components, and best of all, Swarovski crystals and pearls. I love the shine and sparkle of the crystals. They are just beautiful. I was inspired thinking about a wedding with beautiful pink roses to match the earrings and set everything else off beautifully.
This earring is a nice combination of wire, beads and chain. I used black color wire and attached a black chain to it, then I started working with beads using 4 mm black jet Swarovski crystals and 6 mm Czech red glass beads. These earrings are very suitable to wear with an evening gown.

I added pale pink Swarovski crystals and a smaller crystal in a rose colour as a dangle below the flower. I attached them with an antique brass headpin. The earrings are set on long antique brass […]
These are really pretty dangly earrings that are made from Swarovski crystals, Bohemian Czech glass crystals and blue pearl beads. Each bead is individually wrapped with wire to make the fittings to hold it all together. They have great movement, and are very sparkly. I decided to do something a little different with earrings and […]
For a different take on birthstone earrings (August), I decided to make big hoop earrings that are nevertheless surprisingly light to wear. They remind me of a halo which decided me on their name. The hoop is formed out of solid thicker copper wire. It has been hammered flat a bit so that the wire […]
I like to think of myself as a little bit gypsy, and that inspired these earrings. I used sterling silver, which I dipped in liver of sulfur before construction to give it a nice patina finish. I used purple, red, and topaz Swarovski crystals for the beads. These earrings hang 3.25″.
