Amethyst and Green Garnet Earrings


Amethyst and green garnet! Add pearl drops!

I decided to challenge my patience with this pair of earrings.

It's no secret that this style of weaving is my all time favorite. My guess is that our ancestors who wove basket or worked in needlepoint never thought it would be used to join pieces of wire.

The challenge you ask? Typically my go to gauge for this is 26 gauge but, my stash of 26 gauge is getting low. So I dug out some 30 gauge wire I have from back when wire was around $7 an ounce! Shocking yes?

I wish the investors whom think it's nifty to buy into silver would stop! They do not realize how much it is hurting the artists who need to make a living too.
