Dainty Drop Earrings with Wine Red Freshwater Pearls, Sterling Silver Wire Wrapped Pearl Earrings



Dainty drop earrings mix bright sterling silver and dark burgundy wine color iridescent pearls in a simple style you'll love wearing any day. The rich rusty wine color freshwater pearls and the artistic wire work details make these handcrafted earrings perfect for the Holiday season. You'll enjoy wearing these earrings at a Christmas or New Year's party when the rich colors of burgundy and evergreen abound. They'd be lovely at a winter season wedding. Merlot is a versatile color: pair it with navy, purple, dark green, black, or grey. If you love pearls no matter the season,  wear them with your blue jeans and a "nice" t-shirt, please, or with that little ikat print sundress next summer. The playful wire work design and pearly shine peeking out from behind will make you feel special whenever you're wearing them. After all, they're pearls!

At a glance, wire wrap pearl earrings:

*  Handmade pearl earrings for pierced ears

*  Short dainty drop earrings are just 1.25-inches long.

I used cultured freshwater pearls in a purplish dark red color with copper overtones (dyed). The pearls are flat rounds like coins or dimes. They are smaller than a dime, however, at just about 12mm in diameter which is slightly less than 1/2 inch. I wire wrapped the burgundy color pearls with sterling silver wire, placing a swirling design on the front face of each one. I hammered the design so the flattened wire had a bit more surface to polish and shine. The shining sterling silver and pearl ornament is simply displayed on a sterling silver lever back style earring for a secure fit.

Total length is about 1.25-inches or 32mm.
