Women often want a pair of earrings to match a necklace they have bought or were given. But matching earrings are not always available. This happened to Liz who was given this handmade necklace. She really wanted the earrings to match. Fortunately, after rummaging through my supplies she found large dark brown beads with copper highlights that closely resembled the focal bead in her necklace.

She added other glass and faceted beads to her earring design. The loveliest touch was the smaller faceted pear drops which were added as dangles. The whole effect was reminiscent of the style of earrings that perhaps Jane Austen herself would have worn.
