Gorgeous pale green chalcedony briolettes, bright blue-green apatite and light smoky quartz are framed by delicate green keshi pearls, that curl and flare like sepals around the buds of spring below dew-kissed leaves of glass...like Art Nouveau at its finest, or a Fairy Tale!

For a long time I've been trying to figure out a way to incorporate briolettes into beadweaving in new ways. I got tired of seeing briolettes "wire-wrapped" - it seemed a clever way to hide the tips and holes in briolettes that were often crooked or chipped, due to the difficulty in drilling, but it didn't lend itself to more structured designs or to beadweaving. When I found these pretty green keshi pearls I was stuck in the middle of my New Leaves design for the Secret Garden challenge last spring - the body was done but the twigs and drops weren't right. The solution didn't come right away, but now I'm really excited and looking forward to lots of new possibilities.

These lovely earrings are about 2" across and 3 1/2" long on 14karat goldfilled earwires. Bold yet delicate, substantial but lightweight: that's one of my favorite things about woven beadwork, it doesn't weigh you down!
