Evening Out Earrings

Lindsey made these lovely long and dangling earrings recently using a chain that makes this look so easy. The chain alternates between the larger flat links and the smaller grouped chains so you just need a section of chain to make this look work. The 3-Petal Bellflowers come in lots of lovely colors and finishes, but this color worked so nicely with the chain.

The Dragon’s Blood stone is the perfect color to match the pond in Monet’s painting. The Double Drilled semi-precious stones… Continue reading Monet’s Pond Bracelet
