This weekend I worked on some custom earrings for a friend's daughter. She needed earrings to match a necklace she planned to wear to a prom. The necklace is a stunningly jeweled and bold statement piece with lots of glass beads that are what I would call aqua or mint green. There is a fair amount of silver in the design as well with multi-stranded chain and findings. Here is what the necklace looks like:
Of course, as usual I deliberated on just the right combination and colors of beads from what I had on hand to match up with this design. I ended up making three pairs of earrings each with different beads and design. All three designs have about a two inch drop and are on sterling silver filled earring wires. I plan to let my friend's daughter choose which design she wants, and I will list the other two in my Etsy shop.
Here are pictures of all three finished designs side by side:
And here are some close-up views of each design:

Which pair do you like best with the necklace? I would love to hear feedback!
