These earrings came to life when I was asked to design earrings for a friend to wear to a wedding: She wanted something shiny but not toooo sparkly, dramatic but not tooo bold, long but not toooo long -- You get the point. The earrings I made for my friend turned out so beautifully, I've made an updated pair, this one just a little bit more contemporary, and absolutely one-of-a-kind.

I'm crazy about opalite -- It catches and reflects unbelievable amounts of color and light -- I have no idea how pinks, blues, and yellows can come from something so milky white, but i guess that's why it's called opalite! The super-fine facets on the bottom disks add sparkle to the shimmer and glow -- These beads are SOOOOO beautiful by themselves, I wanted to highlight them with simple, clean lines of silver. These earrings have a great deal of restraint and elegance, which makes them perfect for your dressiest parties, and just right with jeans and a T.

The faceted opalite disks are topped with Bali-style square silver flower spacers, which create the base of the earring "towers" -- vintage long, thin, marquise (pointed ovals) beads of sterling silver, they're delicate and sturdy at the same time. Sterling silver balls (2mm) top the "towers", with 4mm silver flower spacers supporting small wheels of opalite. Smaller (3mm) sterling silver flower spacers top the opalite beads, and the earrings are finished with 2mm sterling balls.

The earrings measure 1-1/2" bead-to-bead, and hang ~2-1/2" from artisan-made sterling silver hoops.
