Faux "Garnets" by Sue Beads

I had Sue from Sue Beads make me these lovely "garnet" beads. I wanted these so I could try to make something for the January publication of Bead Trends for the Birthstone section. I made 3 sets of earrings and here are two of the sets. If you read between the lines you may have already figured out why there is no third set posted up.

This first pair has genuine garnets at the top and bottom as well as these pewter bead caps. They are hung from sterling silver hooks.
I went all out for the second pair. I used Platinum ear wires and I wire wrapped the little fresh water pearls onto Platinum ball head pins. I added another pearl at the top of the dangle and the bead caps are silver plated.

I hope you come back again soon.
