This is an easy, pretty, and inexpensive project. Those three little words are music to my ears. I love to do something easy once in awhile. I make and sell jewelry. These would make a very handy pair of earrings to have in your jewelry box. They can be worn with anything. My only suggestion would be to make a pair in silver also.

Elegance and simplicity meet once again - can see these with a tailored suit or with a slender-lined elegant but simple dress or gown - another brilliant idea shared

wow, its good, simple, quick and elegant. thanks i got that though am new in these.
