Sapphire Gold Hoop Earrings

Here in Southeastern Minnesota we are delighted today with the sunshine that is radiating more warmth and the billowy white clouds floating lazily across an azure sky!  The wind is a bit brisk, but invigorating if properly dressed.
OH JOY!!  We are one day closer to SPRING!!  My heart thrills to know that God has deemed there to be seasons that come one after the other!  Just as "seasons" come to be in our lives.  There is always a possibility of change for the better when one's outlook might look dismal!  Does that not give you HOPE??

Needing a gift for a friend a few months ago I used one of my favorite earring patterns.  This design can be changed depending on the size of the hoop you like, the color of the center beads along with the smaller side beads.   I used 8mm round sapphire Swarovski crystals, 14k gold filled 20g& 22g wires along with the 3mm round gold plated beads.
What fun to use the printed muslin bag, that I purchased from a local artist ~Joan Herzog ~ for my gift wrap.  Joan was a delightful person to meet while we were attending the Lanesboro, MN  "Art In the Park"  Craft Fair this past summer.
Carry On and CREATE!      ~Sandie
