My New Labradorite Earrings

I have a new pair of earrings that feature lovely labradorite. I made the long metal components by hammering pieces of wire, then wrapping them around a mandrel (which in my case, is usually a socket from a socket set). I made another set of these components to use in another design, but I am afraid to try it because it involves using my little butane torch right next to a gemstone bead. I am just hoping I don't break the bead!
