Freshwater Pearl Earrings

I had these cute teardrop shaped findings for earrings {thanks Amy!} and could not resist wire-wrapping pearls to go on them. I wanted to create something pretty and elegant, earrings that could be dressed up or down.

Here is what the they looked like prior to putting the ear wires on. I thought about adding more pearls, but decided against it after leaving them alone for a while.

Here is what the earrings look like finished. They actually came out better than expected. When worn, the pearls cluster in the middle—so pretty.  I have been working on pearl jewelry for the last two days, so you will definitely see more pearl jewelry soon.

Freshwater Pearl Earrings measure approximately 1 ½ inches from the ear wire. These earrings can be purchased at the EZRA Spring 2012 jewelry party on Saturday, March, 24th.

Oh, and a little shout-out to Amy. Any time she sees any cute jewelry findings she always picks some up for me! She is such a sweetheart! Gracias!

Week 5: Burgundy Gili Pendant and Earrings

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This week’s color focus is red: “red symbolizes blood, salvation, redemption, sacrifice, fervent love, fire, courage and boldness” (www.preciousstonesof thebible.com). The only red I had to work with was in the burgundy tone, so after praying for direction, I decided to make a pendant to go along with the burgundy Gili earrings. This beautiful burgundy glass briolette reminds me of blood—not in the gory way, but in the life-changing Jesus way. Ephesians 2:13 “But now in Christ Jesus you who formerly were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ” (NAS). This verse resonates with me because sometimes I feel far off, but I know that I am not—I am saved through Jesus. The pendant and earrings can serve as a reminder of Jesus and His life-saving blood. The earrings measure approximately 2 ½ inches and the necklace measures 18 inches.
