Delicate Romance...

Here are the finished earrings for Beads for Blogging. They consist of Tanya's gorgeous turquoise coloured rounds, individually wrapped in silver plated wire. The tiny turquoise-magnesite dangle beneath pastel pink coral coins.


Originally, I designed these differently. I rolled the beads around my table and decided on a dangling cluster style. The first try wasn't hanging quite right. And it didn't have the delicate flow I wanted. But, with a little tweaking, these sweet earrings came to life.


I'm not one to follow fashion trends, but a little birdy told me pastels are 'in' this year. I have to admit, they're growing on me. Some color combinations are just meant to be.
