Autumn Awakening ~~Orange and Black Agate Dangle Earrings
After an abrupt closure some time back, my favorite bead store reopened this week in a new location and with fresh merchandise. You can imagine my delight and joy as I walked the aisle, ran my hands across strand after strand of glorious gemstones and browsed the pearls. These orange and black agate cylinders caught my eye immediately. It's autumn and I'm ready for leaves to fall. Pumpkins are Everywhere. So, I wired them up, added small black Swarovski crystals and hung from leverback wires. I thought they'd be the perfect for accompaniment for the fall.
Earrings are made with silver (plate) wire. Beads are orange and black faceted agate with natural swirls and streaks of orange mingling with the black. One side of the beads is more dominate with orange. Earrings measure 2.1" from the top of the wires.
