Earrings from 22 g wire and a pair of glass pearls

These two glass pearls were liberated from a $1.00 "pearl" necklace bought in downtown L.A. They combine with a couple of inches of 22 g. silver plated copper wire for a pair of surprisingly elegant earrings. I made the wire spiral around a round pencil that was slightly thinner than the usual pencil width.Similar earrings could be made with a thicker or textured wire for a little more heft, but when worn even this relatively fine wire catches the light with every movement of your head.
