About 4 years ago, I made a similar pair of earrings, using turquoise chips.  These are my “go-to” earrings, I wear them several times a week – and they are the oldest item of jewelry that I’ve made that I still wear.  I have recreated these basic earrings in small swarovski pearls, and absolutely love them.  I made myself a pair, and have a pair available in my etsy shop.
