Teardrop Necklace and Earrings Set


This month our theme for Inspire My Creativity is something to wear. I'm excited to see what everyone else came up with. I'm excited to share an old project with you. I created this necklace/earring set FOREVER ago. Now is the perfect time to finally share it.

Sometimes a girl just needs a fancy accessory. This necklace is not a piece I wear often. But when it's time to dress up for a nice dinner or event, it's nice to have a piece of jewelry that fits the occasion.

This necklace really brings on the sparkle. I've always been drawn to a bit of sparkle. I've made my girls crystal and pearl headbands, and some bejeweled hair clips.  I also made some wire circle earrings adorned with these same pear crystals and some pink bi-cones.
