Chevron Flight Earrings


Abstract design meets a cool modern vibe in our Chevron Flight Earrings. Using angled rows of twisted bugles (TW2012), 4mm Swarovski pearls, 8/0 and 11/0 seed beads, and an 8mm Swarovski bicone as the centerpiece, this vivid arrangement of lines and dots provides just the right amount of avant-garde to any outfit. The Swarovski pearls provide balance while the large crystal tip adds a bit of sparkle to this dashing and dart-like design.
