Sharon of Livewire Jewelry

When I saw these earrings on Sharon's blog, I just had to have them.  I love milky, opalescent beads and was drawn to Sharon's design.  The earrings are even more beautiful in person because there's a halo around the perimeter of the bead that you can only see when they're hanging. Sharon's attention to detail is the finishing touch! But I mentioned to Sharon that I was buying these as a birthday present to myself.

When I opened the box, look what else was inside! A birthday present of more beads and pendants from Sharon and a nice little note that she had made several of the pieces with her little ol' hands.  Beautiful!

And, here are those milky opalescent beads again ... oh boy!  Look at Sharon's resin piece.  It's amazingly delicate in feel and look.  Wow!

The packaging was delightful.  I should have taken a photo of the silk velvet ribbon that adorned the box, but I couldn't wait to tear into it!  Thank you, Sharon.  You made me feel very special! :-)  I'll think of you and your thoughtfulness every time I wear your beautiful earrings ...

I bought myself some of Sharon's fab earrings as a gift from my husband for our 10th anniversary. Gorgeous as well-- she really has a knack for beautiful earrings. Thanks for sharing!
