Double-movement teardrop earrings

Solder cool dangles that swing in two places

These earrings are especially nice because they not only move from the earring top, the internal stone has its own movement as well. These earrings would make a fabulous gift or a welcome addition — with a bit of sparkle — to your (or somebody else’s!) holiday attire.
