These one of a kind, sparkling earrings made to my own design, are a reminder to me why it’s sometimes better to be a princess than an artist. I recently saw some macrame items and thought “I used to be good at that – I could design some earrings using those techniques”. Sadly, my fingers are not as nimble as they were 30 years ago when I was the macrame queen but I was getting the old rhythm back towards the end.
The earrings measure approx 6.5cm / 2 1/2″ long from the top of the ear wire to the end of the textured rings.
The fish hook ear wires are sterling silver with a ball decoration. Each earring has two droppers consisting of a macrame spiral made from Beadalon 9 strand silver coloured wire embracing an 8mm Swarovski bicone crystal and finished off with a sterling silver crimp and a cute little Beadalon tassle. Each earring contains a Peridot and a Topaz Swarovski crystal. Despite their size there is roughly 9 feet (2.8 metres) of Beadalon in these earrings.
The earrings will be shipped in a pretty gift box.
