This is a story of serendipity.
I bought some amazing Karen Hill Tribe silver cones that I just fell in love with, but never got around to using.
Then I bought remarkable large faceted opalite briolettes.
I put them together and what did I get?
Aren't these wonderful!
I have one pair (I had 2, but I brought them into work and sold one immediately) and haven't listed it in my shop yet. I'm still tinkering with the photos and deciding on a name.
I originally thought that the earrings reminded me of seashells - the opalite added to the nautical feeling.
But when I showed them to my 12-year old daughter, Emma, the first thing she said was that they looked like unicorn horns!
I like that.
(If you have a suggestion for a name, I'd love to hear it. Once I get name I'm happy with, I'm going to list them.)
Jan 22 UPDATE: These earrings are now available in my online shop. You can find them here.
