Metallic Chandelier Earrings

Even though I have been making quite a few pieces of jewelry recently, it's been really long since I made any chandelier earrings . The last one I remember making was this one I posted quite a while back. I was surprised when I realized that its been so long, mainly because chandelier earrings are my favorite kind of earrings. They are such fun accessories and I love the fact that these earrings add a nice touch to just about any kind of dress.

Once I decided to make some chandelier earrings, I tried to figure out which bead would be most versatile and work with a variety of dresses.

Teardrop pearl and jade bead necklace

Recently I purchased jade beads in a few colors that I wanted to use in necklaces. I bought some dark green jade beads and these purple jade beads. Dark green jade I used in this vintage/ ethnic kind of necklace with a pendant and gold beads. For the purple beads, I decided to combine it with some pink tear drop shaped pearl beads that have been sitting in my bead box for a while now.

I kept the design simple, did not use any pendants for this necklace. This design is quite unlike anything else I have done in the past.  It is so simple and elegant and has a very delicate feel to it that adds a touch of dressiness without seeming very overwhelming. This necklace has easily become one of my favorites :)
