Peridot, Pearl and Sterling Earrings
Here is a beautiful pair of earrings. I started with a piece of 16 gauge sterling wire, then hammered it flat and gave it texture. Then I started wrapping it using fine gauge sterling wire, 4mm faceted peridot rondelles, sweet little fresh water pearls and 2mm sterling silver beads, and violla! This is what we ended up with! If you notice, when I made the ear wires I wired on a few beads just to add a little something extra to these earrings! They measure just under 3 inches (7 1/2cm) from the top of the ear wire.
