These earrings were inspired by Dale Chihuly's beautiful gilded frost and obsidian chandelier and I loved the color pallet. They are a fun project to make up in a variety of colored wire. Create a matching necklace using a length of the beaded chain. When you first start out, it may take a few practice runs to get 2 earrings to match. No worries, you'll be whipping them out in no time!
