These earrings are made starting out with a gold-filled teardrop component which I then wire wrap gold-filled rolo chain onto. Then I go around again and wire wrap gold-filled beads and Swarovski 3mm pearls to the rolo chain. The ear wires and wire I use for wrapping are also gold-filled. These earrings are very light weight. They measure 1 – 7/8 inches. About three hours of work go into the making.
