My favorite stone, amethyst. Goes nice with the pearls I think. Making these earrings has made me want to try my hand at some actual filigree work. With a torch and everything.
These I've been thinking about for a while. I've been wanting to incorporate the swirly silver bits with some of the flower beads. It took me a while to actually figure out how to get them together. I tried a couple of other designs but the flowers just didn't want to cooperate.
