These are definitely a very classy pair of drop earrings. I love the idea of dipping them in gold to add some sparkle and pizzazz. They are suitable for all types of clothes from casual to formal. The video tutorial of how to add the gold is no longer available since the Instagram account has been deleted.

I am really loving these. First of all they are purple, that's my favorite color. Secondly, they dangle and now with my short hair cut I can really show them off. And thirdly, they are so simple to make. I do have some of these shaped beads but not in purple . I do have some large cube stones in amethyst that would be very pretty. It works the same way. Thank you for sharing.

I can't believe that these elegant earrings are so easy to make! The gold leaf on the briolettes really takes these to the next level and makes them look very expensive.

I have never used these Briolette beads before but they are very elegant and expensive looking by themselves but add the gold flex it is so breath taking. I do not have these gemstones on hand but I will be getting some and making these drop earrings for me and some family members. I like that these can be dressed up or down to wear anytime. The tutorial is so easy to understand. Can anyone tell me a good place to buy these Briolette beads?
