Elegant Pearl and Ruby Earrings
by Michele Rose
Rubies and freshwater pearls are such a yummy combination. No need to add much to the design when the beads are so beautiful on their own - just a couple of sterling silver touches. This stunning earring kit requires two wire twists, but otherwise it's a simple project that can be completed in less than an hour.
4 faceted ruby beads
2 semi-round 9.5mm cream freshwater pearls 2 sterling silver 2mm round bead 2 sterling silver 1.5 inch thin headpin 2 sterling silver leverback earwires
