These orange beads reminded me of orange peel and had to become a great flower earring. Sometimes it is as simple as the bead inspiring a creation. The seed beads and crystals in the darkest of blue add the zest. Sterling silver handmade ear wires create an elegant sweeping appendage.

Orange Zest Earrings
The metal elements are sterling silver. Sterling silver can tarnish. If there is tarnish a polishing square is included. Store the earrings in a cloth or Ziploc type bag between wearing. This will protect the brass from the atmosphere that causes the surface to oxidize. Very occasionally spritz the earrings with Windex, rub around so all surfaces are covered, and rinse thoroughly. Rinse some more to ensure that there is no residue from the Windex. Air dry thoroughly and return to the cloth or Ziploc type bag. All jewelry requires a little care to maintain its beauty.
The handmade earwire and connection wire is sterling silver. The dangle is created with Czech glass lentil beads and Chinese crystals.
