Pearl stacks with silver knots and green amethyst briolettes - image 1 - student projectI had some pearls left over from knotting a string and thought the knots would jolly them up! I call them my sputnik earrings - my age is showing. The pearls are about 11mm each so I have used short earwires to stop the earrings being too long.

I couldn't find teardrop beads so have substituted these faceted 20 mm green amethyst briolettes. I took a leap of faith and ordered directly from BSGems in Jaipur. This gem factory sells through Etsy. The stones they sent me are fabulous but you do need to order quite a lot to make the delivery charges worthwhile. A supplier for you to consider Joanne? The gems were dispatched immediately, well packaged and arrived a week after the order was placed. Has anyone else tried them?
