I’ve been wanting to make these earrings for a while now. Basically because I wanted to use the finding. I just thought it was so pretty. But no beads wanted to cooperate with it. Goes that way sometimes.
So I added the pink crystal briolette and a bit of chain behind it. And then went looking for what to use on the sides. No bead color wanted to work. So I added dark brass hearts. And I thought I was there. But something about the proportions and scale did not feel quite right.
I looked at them again tonight and added a second bit of chain. I think it makes all the difference.
