Garnet and Gold-Filled Wire earrings.

Got sold today itself! :-)) I wrote this blog entry this morning, wrote about it on Facebook and Twitter, and a wonderful gentleman on Facebook bought these and my bio-lemon drop earrings :-)). Thank you Andrew! :-))

I was going to make hoops, but then 1/4 way (yes, exactly 0.25 of the way ;-) ) I decided I wanted to try a spiral earring instead. So I first made these spiral earrings in 14k Gold-filled wire, hammered it, and was going to leave it at that. It looked pretty good that way. But 2 days later I changed my mind (of course), and now we have Garnet beads woven/coiled on the spiral frame. These are beads that I totally fell in love with. They are absolutely gorgeous, and one of those things I went over my budget to buy.

Swati these are gorgeous! And see, it's the Hijacking of the Unexpected again - the garnets must have really wanted to be on the spirals, and those hoops definitely wanted to be spirals. :) YAY for sale! So happy for you!

Those garnets are beautiful, congratulations on selling them so fast. I love swirls & it's so creative that you changed the earring design while you were making them.

Your work is really beautiful...no wonder they sold so fast. Gardent is my birthstone, and I would have loved to have bought them myself. :) Sorry, I did not respond to your post the other day on my blog. I must have turned off my e-mail notification. You asked how I found you. I found you on Twitter.

Swati said...

Hey Dottie! Nice to hear from you :-). If you want, I can always make these earrings for you again.

These are gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. Could you not make TOPs like these: you know what I mean? So that the spiral would lie flat on the earlobes, not hang (tho this hanging one looks exquisite)? Please? Will you make a pair of such tops in moonstone and silver and let me buy them? I really want to buy something from your store!! Like when we were kids and played dukaan-dukaan.
love from... who else but biscoot-ki-aunty
