I love the red violet color of these 9mm micro faceted quartz onion briolettes. They are wire wrapped using an artistic relaxed feel with gold filled wire. I' ve hand forged the ear wires into a shape that is a little different than my usual leaf shape, to make them easy to put on.To make them very strong, I' ve hammered the front part of the ear wires, this also imparts a sparkling texture, adding to the elegance of the earrings. The total length of these earrings is 1 1/2 inch or 3.7 cm. Please use the provided gold filled butterfly nuts ( not shown in the photos ) to prevent loss. Care should be taken not to drop these earrings on a hard surface. Ready to ship.
