Shoulder Duster Earrings, Black Onyx, Orange Crystals, Long, Halloween

Quantity: 1 available
Product Description
These pretty earrings bring together faceted black onyx round beads, golden orange ("Sun") Swarovski bicone crystals, and light-catching lengths of silvery chain in a shoulder duster pair of dangles perfect for Halloween celebrating!

The black onyx beads (8mm) are the centerpiece of the pair's top supporting design component, and have a lovely shine. Each one is nestled between silver-plated scalloped bead caps and sterling rounds (2mm), with a clear crystal bicone above (4mm, Swarovski) and a golden orange crystal bicone (5mm) below. There is also, at either end, a hand-fashioned wrap of the sterling silver wire (22 gauge) used for the component.

From each of these top components hang three different, stepped lengths of silver-plated chain. Sparkling dangles of crystal are attached to the ends of the chain, with each one pairing a clear crystal bicone (top) with a golden orange one (bottom). Below the latter is added a 2mm sterling round, and the dangle is wire wrapped at both ends. Non-tarnish silver plated wire (24 gauge) is used for these dangles.

The three lengths of chain are arranged from the shortest to the longest, with the arrangement reversed between earrings to make them look more symmetrical when worn. Also, in this way, the wearer can decide which length would be nicest to frame the face - the two short lengths or the two longest.

The ear wires are handmade sterling silver (20 gauge) hooks. I added a small rondelle of faceted jet black glass to the front wire of each, and their forward curve is gently hammered for strength. They come with white earnuts (aka earring stoppers) for better security on your ears.

The length for this pair is 3 7/8 inches including ear wires.

This lovely pair of shoulder duster earrings is a fun way to add an elegant touch to your Halloween dress-up, and can be worn at any other time of the year!
Inspiration/Story Behind This Product
I've discovered that I love making Halloween/Samhain jewelry that has an elegant side to it. I also really love the color of the "Sun" crystals, which looks so much like the warm hue of pumpkins. In my listing, I included a couple of photos of the earrings with little mini pumpkins, to illustrate. :)
