The strand of briolettes that these 2 came from was amazing ... and these are the only 2 that made a pair. I find that incredibly frustrating. I guess many necklaces will follow.
These brios are quite large and I didn't want to cover much of their beauty, so I used the "large-hole-silver-bead" method of finishing them for earrings. This method secures the bead and hides the wire wrapping above the bead without obscuring any of its beauty. Plus it makes a nice little nest for the pearl to rest in.
These earrings are for sale in my etsy shop. Click on the photo to go directly to the listing.
