Earrings for a Custom Order

When I was at the Markham Home for the Holidays Show, November 20 – 23rd, I sold this necklace.

Sticks and Rice Necklace (Sold)
Freshwater Stick and Rice Shaped Pearls

The necklace was purchased by a lady named Sharon who loves matched sets. She requested a pair of earrings to match. Since I had none available Sharon requested that they be made with a single stick pearl in each earring. The rest of the design was left to me.

The necklace is strung on sterling silver wire and closed with a sterling silver clasp. Before making her earrings I decided to make a prototype of the design dancing in my head and chose to make them out of copper.

There are 6 rice pearls surrounding the stick pearl, all hung from an open circle. I’m tickled pink with how these turned out. And here is the pair I made for Sharon. I delivered them last night (turns out she lives less than 10 minutes from me). She was thrilled with them. Thanks Sharon
