Some new earrings!

Well, I finally found my blowtorch and thought I'd try making my own rounded ball earring wires, because they look that much cooler than just cutting the end of the wire and leaving it like that. And they turned out great, I really think they make a big difference.

Forest Glow Prehnite Drop Earrings

These are made with prehnite and tourmaline. I did my best with the photo, but they're so much prettier in real life. *sigh*

Rose Quartz Briolette Drop Earrings

These turned out so nicely, they're so pretty with the huge rose quartz briolettes!

Luminous Green Chaldecony Drop Earrings

And finally, I used green chalcedony and gunmetal to make these - they're ever so slightly steampunky! What I love is how the chalcedony seems to glow in the light. These don't have the rounded ball earring wires, but I just made them a few days ago, so I thought I'd post them anyway.

Anyway, that's what I've been working on, hope you like! :)
