Scheherazade, The King's storyteller - 3-in-1 Earrings

This is quite a unique earring that I have created up to date. It features a dramatic design that captures the essence of Middle Eastern jewelry. And the cool factor of this artistic pleasure is that it’s a *3-in-1* piece with removable and attachable danglers. So you can wear it in 3 styles; a vivacious hoop (pic. No 2), a glamorous dangler (pic no 3) and combining the two together that gives a dramatic look.

The hoop itself gives an alluring and stunning design, crafted in sterling silver 925 with luxurious compliments of the sauciest AA Chalcedony Fat Briolette, glimmering Gold Pyrite Faceted Rondelles and tiny Thai Sterling Silver Faceted beads. Notice how the capping of the purple chalcedony brings a 3D effect look, adding characteristic value into this design.

The second component is the umbrella-like danglers or as suggested by my dear friend seems to mimic the shape of a bird cage. :) Either one, I am very pleased with the result. It’s heavily embellished with swirl motive and skirts of lovely Luxe Tundra Sapphire Rondelles, most gorgeous shades ranging from a rich plum to andalusite type browns to grossular garnet greens and finally burnt paprika orange tones. The grandeur purple color dropping in the middle is the elegant Hydrothermal Quartz Faceted Pear Briolette, rich and fabulous.

I applied a tiny toggle on top of the glamorous danglers so that it can be unclasped and worn separately for subtle elegance. An FOC separate earring hooks (crafted by me) is provided so you can have fun with these beauties.

Measurements are as follows:-

  • a. Hoop ~ a dainty hoop with a 1.1" diameter
  • b. Danglers ~ dropping 2.5" from top of the earring hook
  • c. Both ~ dropping 2.9 " from top of hoop

This was a wonderful idea! The connections between the 3 pieces are very clever and flow well with the design. I especially like the 'hoop' part, and I think the hoop would make a good tute!

Thanks sweet Waterwaif! Thank you dear Mary!

Mary: I had the idea for a very long time but just couldn't find the right design to go with it. At last I just need to get this thing out of my head. I love the hoop too~! :) But I don't have the slightest idea of how to write a tutorial...>_<
