Carol liked this hoop style of earrings so much that she made more than one. But she was able to custom design each pair differently. Here she has used a small blue tear drop mother of pearl (MOP)bead in the centre, flanked by coordinating glass beads.

The MOP is quite a bright shade of blue so Carol chose to keep the rest of the design subdued. The MOP then stands out more. The MOP bead has a lovely "shimmer" to its look which is not evident in this photo. For easy wear, the hoop is attached to the earhook thus speeding up the early morning routine.
