These earrings feature bright, colorful, ever-changing Mirage Mood Beads, and they're completely fabulous. They'd be pretty even in neutrals, but here, when changes in temperature and/or mood take their deep burnished brown base to endless combinations of blues, reds, golds, purples, and greens, they are absolutely stunning. Be sure to check each photo for a little preview of the magic.

The centerpiece 12mm polymer mood beads (very light & comfortable to wear) have a contemporary floral design embossed underneath a glossy surface. At room temperature, the beads are cobalt blue with a dark background, but as you wear them, their colors change (see chart below). The 3rd & 4th photos were taken in the same area, just minutes apart. They say that the color changes reflect alterations in body & ambient temperatures, but I prefer to believe that they express my (always fluctuating) moods. I'll include a guide to the shades with your earrings (see below); be advised that it is very much open to interpretation.

5mm green-opal prism crystals and 2mm sterling balls sit below the mood beads. 3mm sterling saucers nestle into the tops, balancing shimmery 8mm vintage blue goldstone (sandstone) balls. 4 tiny (1.5mm) antique French cut steel beads are stacked upon the sandstone; these gorgeous little beads look like marcasite, and have sparkle much greater than their size suggests. They are topped with 3mm sterling flower spacers and smaller (4mm) blue goldstone beads.

Bead-to-bead, the earrings measure 1-1/2". They hang -- long, light, and lovely -- 2-1/2 inches from beautiful artisan-crafted spiral-ended hoops. Please note that the earrings are not permanently attached to their beautiful wires; this does not affect the wear at all. I will include earring backs and wear & care instructions.

Your earrings will be packaged in a gift box, along with a card that identifies the colors of the earrings. Gift wrapping is free upon request.


Each style of Mirage Mood Beads has a unique color range, and you'll often find your beads in the process of change, taking on a veritable rainbow of bright shades. I will include a card that describes the colors and their associated moods. Here's a list for these beads: DARK BROWN: Cold, withdrawn, hesitant // DEEP PURPLE: Cool, solitary, moody; COBALT BLUE: Warming, contented, at ease; // TURQUOISE: Happy, outgoing, optimistic; GREEN: High energy, creative, excited; GOLD: Mixed emotions. Of course, these are very much open to interpretation!
