Hi!
Here´s the pictures of my Crystal Earring I recieved few weeks ago. It´s a continuance to my Crystal Ring.
It´s 3,2cm tall and 0,5cm thick on the end of the largest cystal. I made the crystal as stretched cone shape wich gives it a nice depth effect.

I´ll post photos of it in action when I get the chance.

here´s some nature themed pics.

That looks great! I can see the cone influence in the design. It would probably look nice in one of the glass or transparent materials too.

I agree bdeaver, one of those in enameled black glass would look sick!

Thanks ! =)

Glass would look good with this, I´ll have to give it a try and since I havent tested the glass material before, this would be prime candidiate for a test. Also FUD would be nice too when dyed or painted with translucent colors.

I was thinking of changing the loophole to more angular one, so it would fit the general theme of the rest of the earring.

Here´s finally the earring in it´s natural habitat. It proved quite an elusive target as it has been really cloudy and raining here for almost a week.

a shorter hook might suite it better, so it would hang closer to the ear.
I´ll see if there are any sold nearhere.
