You've probably noticed that I like color -- a lot -- so these gorgeous, bright, and ever-changing Mirage Mood Beads are a dream come true for me. The exquisite beads are a fabulous improvement upon the mood rings of our youth: Decorated with interesting designs and unique shapes, they'd be lovely even in neturals, but here, when changes in temperature and/or mood radiate from their turquoise base with browns, reds, greens, and (my favorite) cobalt blue, they are absolutely stunning. Be sure to check every photo, so you can see some of the magic!

The centerpiece 12mm mood beads remind me of exotic pots or vessels, with intricate designs embossed underneath a glossy surface. At room temperature, the beads are cobalt blue, but as you wear them, their colors will change (see chart below).* Maybe the color changes reflect alterations in body temperature and ambient temperature, but I still like to think that they reflect my mood. I'll include a guide to the shades with your earrings (see below); be advised that it is very much open to interpretation!

Beneath the mood beads, 5mm green-opal prism crystals are finished with 2mm sterling balls that extend from handcrafted headpins. Above, 3mm sterling saucers nestle into the tops of the mood beads, balancing 8mm vintage blue goldstone (sandstone) balls, shimmering with sparkly "stars." // 4 tiny (1.5mm) antique beads of faceted cut steel are stacked upon the sandstone; these teeny beads look like marcasite, and have sparkle much greater than their size suggests. They balance 3mm sterling flower spacers, upon which sit smaller (4mm) blue goldstone beads, mirroring the shimmer of those below.

Bead-to-bead, the earrings measure 1-1/2". They hang -- long, light, and lovely -- 2-1/2 inches from Betty Brite's artisan-crafted spiral-ended hoops.**

I will send your earrings in a gift box and organza bag (unless you request recycled/reduced packaging), accompanied by a handcrafted card that describes the beads & wires, as well as a guide to the colors of the beads. Gift wrapping is free upon request; be sure to include pertinent details (e.g. mailing address, message, occasion, etc.) in Notes to Seller at checkout.

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 rainbow hues. 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 Here's a list for these beads: DARK BROWN: Cold, withdrawn, hesitant // DEEP PURPLE: Cool, solitary, moody; COBALT BLUE: Warming, contented, at ease; // TURQUOISE: Happy, outgoing, optimistic; GREEN: High energy,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!

*I'm collecting Mirage Mood Beads in all sorts of colors and shapes, and I'll continue to add Mood jewelry to the shop through coming weeks. With Mood Beads, you can have endless looks in one piece of jewelry. Check these snazzy pieces:

~ FEELING PURPLEY: These earrings feature the same centerpiece beads as the earrings listed here, but create a very different silhouette when combined with my grandmother's antique purple crystals:
~ MYSTERY MOOD EARRINGS: Turquoise-based mood beads and Czech glass with handcrafted spiral-ended ear wires:
~ IN THE MOOD EARRINGS: Teardrop mood beads are accented with hammered and stardust copper and gilded purple crystals:
~ MOODY BEE EARRINGS: Shop favorites, these earrings feature bright disks embossed with whimsical bees; they're matched with aurora borealis rhinestone rings and purple miracle beads:
~ Also available : MOODY BEE NECKLACE -- Same beads, made into a pendant with the accent beads of your choice.

**Please be aware that the bead pendants are not permanently fastened to their very special ear wires. This does not affect wear in any way. Care instructions (and earring backs) will be included with your earrings. // If you would prefer a different ear wire, drop me a line.
