Champagne and crystals

Sometimes a piece of jewellery comes together almost by itself. I’ve had these beautiful Swarovski baroque style drops since the autumn when I made earrings from those same components in red, brown and turquoise combined with garnet gemstones.

A strand of these champagne coloured citrines came home with me from Barcelona and they were just dying to get together with the clear crystals. It’s not brain surgery to come up with earrings like this. But even if I say it myself, they are quite lovely. There’s something very festive but also a little ghostly about them…

    I love to see other jewelry artist’s work. You have a great eye for color and combinations. Swarovski is always beautiful too. It is also fun to visit the rest of the world. My best from New York City.
