Why, you ask? What makes them so special?
Well, those bottom beads are handmade lampwork by Juli Cannon--one of my favorite beadmaking artists ever--and they absolutely glow. They're opalescent and not-quite-pink, not-quite orange, not-quite-purple... and they make me very, very happy.
I'm not planning on keeping all of the earrings that I'm making this month, but this pair is mine, all miiiiiine!
Happy Friday, everyone!
