Captured Turquoise

handcrafted jewelry earrings sterling silver turquoise
I completed a series of earrings a few weeks ago and listed one pair in my etsy shop. I tend to work this way -- make a bunch of one style, varying the colors and then dividing the finished product between etsy, galleries, inventory.

The pair I listed online features turquoise and coordinating turquoise colored craft wire. The beads are framed by a large oval sterling silver link.

For the rest of this series, I used red faceted pearls, green pearls, pink pearls, a bold yellow glass bead, and a variety of neutral colored glass beads. This color selection was dictated by the colors of craft wire that I had on hand.
