Quartz points

Hello! So October is here already, and I suppose I should be posting something seasonal. However, I'm not terribly good at seasonal earrings. If you ask me to make something Autumnal, or for Halloween -I'm stuck! I just like making things which catch my eye. This design is a firm favourite. A bit fiddly, but worth it I think.

The starting point was this pair of pretty purple quartz points. I love that they are jagged, natural and non-uniform. I popped them on a longish piece of oxidised copper wire to make a teardrop shape. Next - a bit of fiddly wrapping of wire to keep the quartz in place and the addition of some pretty turquoise seed beads (who doesn't love purple and turquoise together?). Another bit of fiddly wire wrapping with some juicy purple beads on the teardrop and some very pretty tiny amertrine rondelles. And to finish off -very sweet little turquoise czech flowers to match the little seed beads. And there they are. A little bit boho. And not at all seasonal! But I hope you like them.
They'll be available at my next showcase over on The Earrings Show on Facebook on 30th October.

See you in a couple of weeks :-)




Utterly Lovely Stuff

  2. Purple and turquoise, one of my favorite color combo. With your signature wrap :) Love these. The little Czech flower is the perfect finishing touch.
