Keep It Simple

I tend to make my earrings big and dramatic.
So I have to really rein myself in and remember to make some pairs that are petite and elegantly simple.

Just a pair of matching beads with sterling silver.

The bottom pair is made with a new favorite color of glass - Cim's 'dirty linen.' A lovely grayish, warm white. The cool ridged shape was done with a CGBeads graphite bead roller. A very cool toy.

The top pair is transparent olive glass, wrapped in fine silver foil and rolled in Val Cox large size purple rose frit.

I will be making these in about a bazillion colors for the holidays.
