Sometimes Simple Really is Better

There had to be something that could be used instead of just crystal beads. There is nothing wrong with crystal beads and I use them a lot, but I really wanted the reflective quality of more silver, too. Then I remembered the little teardrop bezel connectors in my stash. The only thing I had to decide was which size ball stud to use, the 5mm or the 4mm (I went with the 5mm). Sometimes simple and easy to make really is better! These earrings are the perfect combination of ice and snow!
