Some more fruits of my weekeend labor:
These earrings are of extremely similar styles but differ in a few ways. The top pair is made of 26g sterling silver wire with very small sterling silver beads surrounding a single ruby bead.
The second pair is made with 22g sterling silver wire, much larger sterling beads, and natural carnelian rondelles. They are much heavier than the ruby version, but still comfortable to wear. I call them Gypsy earrings.
