Artist Statement: These Almond Drop Earrings feature 26 purple, pink, and red gemstone beads, beautifully matched for size and color. The drops are hand woven using my original Almond Drop design for weaving beads. I painstakingly enlarged the hole in each gem with a tiny drill to make the holes large enough for multiple passes of the needle. The earrings look the same on the front and back.
The ear wires are hand forged from argentium sterling silver wire. The argentium alloy delays the tarnishing time of the sterling silver.
The drops are 23mm by 15mm.
Length of earrings from top of ear wire is 36mm.
All of my jewelry arrives in an origami gift box, hand folded by me out of beautiful printed card stock.
