Elixir of Mystery Earrings - Amethyst Teardrops Wire Wrapped in Silver

Amethyst Glass Teardrop Wire Wrapped Earrings in Silver - Elixir of Mystery
I'm not sure why, but purple has always been a color of mystery and the mystical to me. Maybe it has something to do with associating it with the amethyst stone, which is very prominent in many cultures as well as the pagan community as a stone filled with mystical powers.

In these handmade teardrop earrings, tiny transparent glass teardrop briolettes dangle in a shimmer of purple that has been carefully and securely wrapped with silver wire. The drops are then set to dangle on delicate matching silver tone hooks designed by hand for a unique and graceful shape.

These 1.2-inch (3.3cm) earrings are made with care to be light-weight on pierced ears and easy to wear and are part of a growing series of earrings named "The Elixirs".
