Large Pearl Earrings

I know the title says it all...but these really are Large Pearl Earrings.
The pearls are about the size of my thumb nail (which isn't the largest thumb nail in the world...to my knowledge...but still large for a pearl). These are faux pearls and are slightly heavier than they look, but I love the way these earrings turned out. The pearls have a slight tan-ish/pinkish hue, almost like 'ballet pink.' It's a real color, I promise :)

I made these while in California visiting my Sis-in-law Tash---actually I made two pairs...one for me and one for her. That's fair, right? We both wore them to church (which we went to together) and a number of ladies asked if we were best friends since we had the same earrings...haha---I have not had someone ask me that questions because of clothing/accessories since I was in Elementary school...when it was super fun to be 'twins' with your outfits.

Anyway, I don't have the step-by-step instructions for you, but I do have a list of supplies needed. If you would like a full tutorial, leave me a comment below. I'd be happy to make another pair and take lots of pictures :)
Would you wear these earrings? 
Or other pearl earrings made with pearls of a large size?
Should a put a few in my Etsy shop?

  3. Pearls are known for their elegant beauty and have fascinated women overtime. Pure pearls are rare in nature. The pearl earrings looks very nice and attractive . The designing of such pearls should be much attractive. As we can buy such pearls earrings from Online Pearl Stores .
