    Default French wire hook earrings

    So i realized I've been hoarding many pairs of pearls and didn't know what to do with them. I bought a pair of metallic lavender pearls on simple shepherd hook french wire earrings from Pearlonly on ETSY (first pair from left,oval shape) and just absolutely love the look. I decided to do all french wire for the rest of the pairs i've been keeping in my drawer and couldn't be happier how they turned out (and I know a bunch of people who would be happy to see how they turn out too)

    Bailey, your earrings turned out beautifully! Do you always remember to wear stoppers? Sometimes I forget and unfortunately have lost earrings that can't be matched. (Like many of us, it appears you want a pair in every color, lol.)

    Thanks Pattye!
    LOL, Pattye, yes, it's a terrible addiction. I've learned to make sure to wear stoppers with these since I've lost earrings in the past but thankfully they were just costume earrings.

    Wow, Bailey, That is one gorgeous collection! I almost always wear French hooks because they are compatible with talking on the phone
