New Earrings

This is a new pair of earrings I just got through photographing. Once again, the technique is wire wrap with sterling silver wire. The wire is shaped into the teardrop shape and the ends are coiled and hammered. Thinner wire is wound around the teardrop. Faceted amethyst briolettes are hung within the teardrop, and peridot rounds are sewn to the bottom. The earrings measure 1 3/8" long by 1/2" wide. The amethyst brios are approximately 10.5x7mm and the peridot beads are 2mm.
