I first discovered rainbow bugs when I started making jewelry. When I would be piecing crystals together and the sun was streaming into the room there would be small bright rainbows on the walls. I decided to call the lights rainbow bugs. Then I realised how much they actually could help me in creating jewelry. The refraction levels would be my guide to when I had enough crystals in a piece of jewelry. Today I had bugs all over the walls! The earrings below are a change from what I usually make. I used two pieces of chain and then wired 10 crystals some with an AB finish on each earring. This is a very labor intensive style so I don't do them very often. Then I found one of my jewelry stands and put it in front of the ribbon flowers. The pictures came out great! The earrings already have a new home just in case someone wanted to adopt them!
