Beaded Long Dan gly Earrings with Wampum shells and bone colored beads.

This is an original design concept inspired by my friend Erica.  She had seen another pair of earrings I had done with the Dentalium shells (A genus of marine mollusks belonging to the Scaphopoda, having a tubular conical shell....or... A small, slender horn-like Pacific Ocean shell used and traded as beads and wealth-items....also know as 'wampum'.. click on this word "Wampum' to get more information and history on this shell).
Moving on, Erica had envisioned a more subtle sand washed natural beach effect and this is what I created.

These earrings are weaved in flat vertical peyote with size 15/0 Japanese Hex beads.  The fringe accents are genuine Dentalium Shells and 1.5mm genuine Mother-Of-Pearl terminus beads.   Hung from 24Kgold plated ear wires.  Finished earring measures  3/4 of an inch wide by 3 1/2 inches long.

Though this particular pair has been SOLD, you can order a similar pair in your choice of colors, just contact Sunshine for your custom order needs.

Customer comments:  "These are so remarkable.  They are like something one would see in a museum.  You should have a pair of these.  They are feather wisps with a translucence like parchment.  The beading is exquisite.  I can't get over these no matter how many times I look at them...they are voluptuous but dainty...they remind me of sea washed sand yet whisper light on the ear....beyond adequate description........."
