Purple Earrings

I woke up this morning and decided I needed a new pair of purple earrings, so into the studio I went.

I rummaged through my beads and findings and came up with a few beads that were just the thing.

Here are the components I used for each earring.

For the filigree component at the top I flattened out 1 bead cap for each earring.  Then wired a purple crystal to the center of each.

On the backside I made 2 tiny loops and flattened them against the filigree piece.

For the bottom teardrop I used a  Swarovski crystal teardrop in deep purple with a small bead cap at the bottom.

I love the color purple.  I even have a front yard full of lavender that is in full bloom right now.

And here is the finished earrings.

Happy Crafting!
