Yellow Brick Road earrings

Yellow Brick Road earrings

Carved citrine, deep golden citrine brios, and gold filled wire. I'm having fun with this Wizard of Oz theme.

I'm liking the way earrings look hanging with this setup. Still needs a little tweaking - this pair is a bit far apart - but the potential is there.

Emerald City earrings

Emerald City earrings

I've been hanging onto these incredibly sparkly quartz crystal brios for a while now, knowing that they needed to be paired with something smaller but unsure exactly what to use. Then I got some tiny little (real) emeralds and I knew what exactly what to do.

Prompted in part by a joke with a friend (Connie, this one's for you) I'm embarking on a Wizard of Oz theme in earrings. These will not be the last in the series. The earwires and headpins are handmade.

This second photo shows the earrings hanging naturally. I need to tweak my setup so that they hang closer together, but I like the overall effect.
