Lemon Drops

Who doesn't LOVE yellow in the summer?

Well, I suppose not everyone has to like yellow... But I think of sunshine, lemons, warm summer days. And the newest inspiration for a pair of earrings I've just made.

*first picture is a direct link to listing
As if on cue, as you're sipping a freshly made Lemon Drop in a Martini Glass, ice cold... The facets of these earrings throw the light like you wouldn't believe!

Be it sunlight, moonlight, candlelight.... You name it- these dazzling rondelle beads from Swarovski will throw the light in so many facets it's amazing!

Topped with bicones, and sterling silver spacers- these are elegantly simple in their design.

I've made the earwires as well, 20 Gauge Sterling Silver wire fashioned in an inverted "V" for a classic look, while also avoiding the "slippage" that some other earring designs suffer from..... I know I've lost a few because the backings weren't long enough. (haven't we all?!)

In this picture, you can see a little more detail with this particular kind of bead...

Can you imagine how many facets are cut in to these beads in order to make them throw the light off this spectacularly?! From any angle, these beads reflect light.... And have quickly run away with my own heart!

So go ahead.... Get out the martini glasses, spritz on a bit of perfume, slip these little rays of sunshine into your ears...

And call it a Perfect Yellow Day!


  1. I absolutely LOVE yellow! Just bought some pretty pale yellow lemon pound cake soap on etsy today.

    Great blog!
