I really like putting turquoise together with bright warm and/or earthy colours.
For these earrings I used turquoise leaf beads, some really bright dyed orange beads (possibly quartz – they’re cloudy), a pair of my yellow ochre lampwork spacers, two sizes of turquoise seed beads and some little copper round hollow beads.
I’m not too sure about how well they hang with the extra dangles: they needed something there where the links join, but maybe I should have put an extra jumpring in there between the two main sections so there was more room. Obviously couldn’t do that after wiring them up!
I made the copper earwires and other ball-ended headpins I used.
