Garnet & Silver Grey Pearl Chandelier Earrings

This lovely pair of chandelier earrings uses a couple of different techniques. The base of the earrings is made of precious metal clay. A manufactured prong setting was attached to the clay while still wet. Once dry, holes were drilled in each corner of the diamond. This piece was fired. After firing, a 5mm faceted garnet was mounted Using wire wrap techniques, the pearl and garnet dangles were created and attached to the earrings. Finally, the earrings were hung from ear wires.
