"Love these earrings"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I have several pairs of earrings that are made with Cats eye beads. I love them all. I didnt think I would like these earrings as well as my others but the green color is perfect. It doesnt have a yellow tone to it. It is real green to me. The length and weight is just right for me.

Love the natural feel of these! The go with all my casual wear, both jeans & dresses. I got them too because of the brass hoops - a nice change from my usual silver.

"Stones are beautiful!"

I love these stones, but I have to confess that they are heavier than I can comfortably wear. Im so sad about that. Ive been thinking of putting them on a gold chain as a necklace because the stones are so very pretty.

I love the combination of colors and shapes. I have lots of earrings but none like these which get many compliments for their uniqueness. The craftsmanship is excellent.
