New earring pattern up

I just uploaded a new earring pattern—Vintage Crystal Earrings:
The pattern is also available for purchase at Bead-Patterns.com and Sova-Enterprises.com.
I used some really beautiful 12mm "Water Lily" rivolis that I bought from the Beading in the Rain eBay store. I don't know if my photo quite does them justice, though. The "Water Lily" rivoli is a special effects coating that Beading in the Rain had applied to a batch of Swarovski rivolis, creating pink and purple glow over what appears to be a Golden Shadow or Light Colorado Topaz rivoli.
