Deidry's design is a modified chandelier style of earrings with the three long stems attached to a small jump ring at the top.

She contrasted the pretty and vivid cobalt blue with gold tone beads. The blue dagger or spear beads at the bottom of each long twisted bugle bead were her choice of dangle ends. She still went with the sterling silver earring components because she could team this up with either silver or gold based jewelry - definitely keeping her options open!

Note that Deidry used smaller seed beads at the top which allowed each stem to fall straight down. The previous beader's earrings (#67) used much larger seed beads at the top which resulted in a totally different look. The two pairs of earrings show that while both beaders liked the extra long bugles, their own designs were truly one-of-a-kind!
