PROJECT E8042
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Intermediate
An intriguing mix of beads and chain come together in these bold earrings feature Centerline chandelier pendants strung with Miyuki Delica 11/0 seed beads, Czech glass dagger beads, and slim rolo chain. Combined, these elements create a striking curtain of contrast and movement.
