Packaging and Chandeliers (earrings that is)

This week I worked out a new design for chandelier earrings.  This is a bit of a departure from my usual style.  Although I utilized crochet and beads in the design, there is more "hard metal" to these earrings than is seen in most of my creations.  I was pleased with how they turned out and will probably make others that are similar, using different metals -- possibly antiqued copper or brass.

The first pair I made features aqua blues -- both in the metallic thread and the glass beads.




The second pair of chandelier earrings I made used black mercerized cotton thread and clear glass beads.  The base of the "triangle" is a bit wider and  uses five drop beads, rather than the three found on the blue pair.  I also added some glass seed beads.




I have not named the earrings yet or listed them on my ArtFire site.  I just finished them up this morning and took the photos.

The first photo in each grouping show the earrings displayed on some of Gossamer Tangles new earring cards.  Since I always mention my packaging on my ArtFire site, I thought perhaps I should also provide some pictures so people can actually see what it looks like.

I also do special packaging and gift card enclosures on request, at no extra charge.
