Mint Obsession

in: Earring



I've made several pairs of earrings with these wonderful vintage German glass cabochons, and I love them all.  The facets on the glass are so pretty, and the gold foil backing adds extra sparkled.  These have rows of hand sewn seed beads in hues of gray washed mint, with small faceted crystals at the bottom of each for more shimmer.  They measure about 2 1/4" including the antique silver ear wires, and are about 1 1/4" wide.  I made myself a pair that are similar and I wear them all the time- very lightweight and often complimented upon.  They "go" with everything!
