Yes, I am still alive and kicking in the beautiful Pacific Northwest! And yes, it's been a long time since my last post. But I am back now, and I have a lovely pair of earrings to share. I made these blossom earrings after I received a request for a similar pair, the other pair consisting of tiny peacock pearls. The gold Swarovski pearls pair nicely with the sterling silver wire for a two-tone combination.

I have a couple strands of swirl briolettes that I purchased from the Gem Faire awhile ago. They are beautifully faceted and unique, and I decided to pair them with tiny labradorite rondelles. The rondelles are attached to tiny, sterling silver ball headpins that were made using a butane torch. I believe the smoky quartz and labradorite go well together; I hope you agree!
