This picture really shows the highlighting that I got by slightly polishing the oxidized wire.
Okay, I have to admit, these are my favorite. I just love the bright pink with the olive jade.
I'm calling these "sari" earrings because they remind me of the beautiful colors of Indian saris with gold embroidery. Oh, and I know the wire-wrapping on these is quite retarded-looking. Don't worry, I re-did them after I took the pictures. I was just to lazy to re-photo LOL!
More candy jade - in a yummy deep turquoise shade.
I was so pleased with my "sari" earrings that I went back to the stone vendor and ordered another lot of those olive jade marquis-cut beads. I'll definitely be making more of these - maybe with small gold chains hanging around them or a charm attached to the wraps or something...
Hmmm...the old brain is a-humming with possibilities today...
