rubies and gold-plated chain earrings

rubies and gold-plated chain earrings

Pretty pretty little ruby beads.

They are pretty little, 6mm I think.  So I didn’t want to just put them on a headpin and attach them to an ear wire.  I wanted them to have more impact, but at the same time, keep the focus on those little rubies.

I dived into my chain bin to see what scraps I had that would compliment and yet not overpower.  This rope chain (gold plated I believe) is perfect.

I created two 3″ lengths, attached the ruby bead to one end and and ear wire to the other. Voila.
