    These wonderful earring findings are from our very own Katbran...she did an amazing job on them. As soon as the glue dries on the mounts, I will post ear shots. In the mean time, there's also a matching necklace bar that goes with...will post that one when I've completed the mounts. Katbran made these amazing pieces, which are just gorgeous. When she originally posted about a pair she made for herself...I begged her to make a set for me! The pearls are from Jacques, and are around 12.5 mm each. I LOVE these wonderful earrings!

    And I realize I've used "wonderful" multiple times to describe them! But they really are WONDERFUL! They don't really show up well on a white background (although the pearls do...they have blue halos around them that play beautifully off the silver). I will try to photograph on a darker surface later.

    Wonderful indeed! Beautiful setting for beautiful pearls. Do they feel heavy? Ear shots please.

    Tucs, they have a nice weight to them but I am used to heavier pieces. I use Lobe Wonder ear supports and I don't feel them at all! I will post ear shots tomorrow...I promise! I cannot thank Katbran enough for this wonderful design. They are edgy and cool, and very fashion forward. And credit to Jac for the fabulous pearls...these are from a batch of circled peacocks.
