Black and White . Earrings

One of my new purchases from Tucson was a strand of rutilated quartz briolettes. Searching the strand for perfect pairs with which to make earrings is both fun and frustrating. The two brios that went into creating these earrings are perfectly matched (yay!).

I've topped them with tiny beads of black spinel and slightly larger beads of quartz crystal. The black and clear (and white?) color combination is stark and striking.

They hang from sterling silver leverback earwires.

Interesting briolettes...and a classic, stunning look.

Wow..these are beautiful. I love the way you photographed them. I agree very striking.

PS I gave you a blog award today...and a mention on my blog.

Take care
