The main beads in these earrings are Kazuri beads from Antelope Beads. I love the huge variety of shapes, sizes, and colors of these handmade beads. I used 4mm smokey purple CZ rondelles on either side of the beads and Soft Flex Craft Wire in 22-gauge Non-Tarnish Silver to connect the beads together. Wrapping the wire up and around each bead adds a fun extra dimension to the design. These earrings were inspired by wine and as soon as they arrive in my mailbox, I'm going to wear them out for a glass or two!
