Rose Quartz . Copper Circles . Earrings

I just listed these earrings in my etsy shop a couple of days ago.  You're already familiar with my large circles that I make in sterling, copper and brass.  I selected a pair of copper ones for these earrings and suspended the smooth rose quartz briolettes from the bottom.  They looked so lonely down there.  Their subtle coloration needed a little boost, so I wired on some rose quartz rondelles part of the way up the side.  That's better.

I really like the contrast between the copper, which has a certain rosiness to it, and the quartz.  The earwires are my hand formed sterling silver design.  These earrings are for sale in my etsy shop.
