Morning sky and new earrings

Morning sky
This was a couple of days ago. I just had to take some pictures. Talk about an angry sky! This is about the only sun I have seen in ages. Today, we are having light snow. Just in the air, it melts on the ground. But they are predicting temperatures beneath freezing for next week. Brrrrrrrr.

Ballroom chandelier earrings
These are some new earrings I made yesterday. Vintage chandelier prisms at the top with rock quartz, rhinestones and facetted onyx drops. These are really big and bold!

I am working on a couple of necklaces and hope to be able to show something soon. But I really need to get to work on some earrings! With more metal work...

And your earrings are so rich and sophisticated. Very artistic and elegant.

Beautiful earrings! I love the picture you took and the Drops of Honey Earrings beside the picture and the new ones below the picture, just bring everything into focus! Beautiful work.

Your blazing sunrise compliments your Drops of Honey Earrings and Breathe Fire necklace...You are a very talented artist Stregata. Being only 5'2", your Ballroom chandelier earrings would be too much for me, but they are lovely.

The earrings are beautiful Renate ! The onyx beads have such an original shape, and what a good idea to mix them with vintage chandelier prisms.
Your morning sky is "incandescent", as in summer.

That's certainly a dramatic but beautiful sky.

And welcome to below freezing temperatures. I'm glad to have you join us!

The earrings are Gorgeous. It matches the dramatic sky photo in your post. By the way the necklace on my blog is not a Nina necklace I don't know who the artist is, My mother and sister gave it to me as a birthday present.
