first attept at earrings

nephrite jade and amethyst earrings



Here is the pair of earrings I made last night, the wire work is a little rough, but not too bad for a first attempt. Nephrite jade and amathyst on I believe stainless steel hypoallergenic backings i.e. the cheap ones as I dare not use silver just yet as I would most likely mess it up. And I would actually need to order silver findings first. This picture was taken in the 5 minutes of useable light when the sun almost peeked out from the fog this afternoon.

I think they are lovely, combination of colours are great. I don't wear dangly earrings but if I did I'd wear these.

meridian - i find rosary pliers give the best finish for earrings - you get a nice neat round loop - those earrings are fab - my fave colour combo!
