"Orbit" pendant and earring set

This was a custom order. The thread used was from my "Rhubarb Pie" batch - size 20 for the earrings, and size 10 for the pendant. The red beads are Swarovski crystal pearls. They seem to do a "double orbit" in the earrings, and a "triple orbit" in the pendant.

How beautiful! I a blessed to be in a tatting group and last night we worked with beads! WOW.. I really appreciate your work and you must truly love beads. (that is what one of our instructions said last night when we were 'fighting' with those silly little beads)lol

That's a beautiful set. The circles are perfect. The beads look great with this thread. Where do you get these Swarovski crystal pearls?

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! Your 'Orbit' pieces are just so unique, I love them. If I was a jewelry wearing girl, I would snap them up!

So glad you all like this design!

Carol, I thought I had bought the crystal pearls from the Fire Mt. Gems website:

but now I don't see the red ones, so maybe they came from a local bead store. Anyhow, I used the 6mm size.

Uh-oh, I think I found the source for the pearls - my apologies, they are Jablonex, not Swarovski. They are available on this page:
