Sun Peeks Earrings. These colors were chosen for the Estybead Theme of Week which is Sun and Surf. The drop on these earrings measure 3 3/8" long from the bottom of the fish hook ear wire. They have been hand wrought in a teardrop shape, wire wrapped, hardened and professionally polished. The center drop is an 8mm Lt. Blue cats eye bead flanked with Bali silver bead caps and 3mm sterling silver beads. The outside drops have a 4mm Lt. Blue cats eye bead with Bali flower spacers, 3mm sterling silver beads, and a 8mm long yellow cats eye bead.

This week Estybead team is having the weekly Theme of the Week sale. This week's theme is sun and surf. Featuring all Yellow and Blue Jewelry items.
One of my favorite items for this theme is my Baltic Amber and Bali Bracelet. I really hope it gets a new home this week!
I really like the way these earrings turned out. I soldered chain links that have twisted wire, wire-wrapped the crystals to the chain links and the onyx stones on the bottom.
This is the bracelet I made for the spring Challenge. I really love the colors. I did this bracelet with Sterling Silver components and Bali accent beads. I was really pleased with the way the clasp turned out. I used a spiral clasp to adorn this bracelet. The beads used in this bracelet are pink and clear glass beads in various shades and shapes and pearls. The main focal bead in this bracelet is on the end to act as a weight so your bracelet is not always with the clasp side up. The focal bead is quite pretty with a glass round bead with a pink flower. The back side of the bead is white which shows through giving the bead a very pretty look.
