Earring Bling

CZ Earwires

CZ Earwires

Not the best picture but you get the idea! I mentioned these in the newsletter a couple of issues ago. They are really nice. They can add extra bling to a sophisticated pearl drop earrings, or put an elaborate chandelier-style earring “over the top!” Sterling silver embedded with cubic zirconia rhinestones.  Lavish!

The solid disks are only about 1/2 inch across. Be assured, that your earlobes won’t be brushing the ground when you wear them!
