Sunrise, Sunset

Sunrise, Sunset
The colors in these earrings--from carnelian, lepidolite jasper, and Czech glass--remind me of the lilac Alpenglow of sunrise, and the deep tangerine of sunset. I just love combining opposites on the color wheel--I especially love orange and purple together. The earwires on these earrings are actually made from brass core, silver filled 20 gauge wire from Monsterslayer. I bought some mostly to see how it performed, and was impressed. These earwires are hammered quite a bit where the carnelian hangs from them, as you can see, and the thick, durable plating held up beautifully.

I'm feeling tough today, so this is what I would wear with them!

  1. Ok where do I start?? Those Orange carnelian beads are super cool and I love them combined with shades of purple!! Love the embellished earwires and I love the Harley chick outfit you've chosen for them. You rocked it girl!!

  2. These earrings are amazing! I am a jasper fanatic, just bought more picasso as well as some red carnelian. Must have been fate that led me to your blog post with these earrings or maybe the fact that the ladies at Fusion Beads blog follow you and I had to check your blog out. :D I also love the earrings from your post of today, the 23rd, great ideas are in my head from both designs. I will definitely be a dedicated follower!
