A stream of blackened rainbow Miyuki beads cascades down to a rich blue-black pearl. Miyuki glass beads are handmade on the Japanese island of Honshu. The pearls are freshwater pearls from the pearl mussel (Hyriopsis Cumingii). I was inspired by the idea of a stream of bubbles leading to a sunken treasure.

The shepherd hooks are nickel free sterling silver (.925) imported from Israel.

The earrings were handmade by myself, in the mountains of Idaho. Each earring is made of individually chosen beads carefully selected to balance and compliment each other. I then gently wrap each head pin to make sure everything stays secure for years to come.

I have this piece for sale on Etsy: www.etsy.com/listing/841589523…
