Go ahead, live on the edge. What's wrong with a little color in your life, or more specifically, hanging from your ears.
These earrings feature large amethyst cushion rondelles topped with a round garnet. In between the two, I have added a spiky cluster of tiny amethysts and garnets in shades of red and orange.
What? You didn't know that garnets come in such a wide variety of colors? Stay tuned -- there's an article on this subject scheduled for publication on the Artisan Beaders Blog in the very near future.
These earrings can be seen in my etsy shop. Click on the photo to go directly to the listing.
