Inspired by glam rock fashion genius Jean Paul Gaultier, Swarovski’s crystal spike pendants bring contemporary brilliance to this project.  The pendant here sets the stage for an impressive earring. The spike is the backdrop for the matching, dangling, crystal bicones.  All the beads glisten with clarity like only real Swarovski can produce.  Pair them with a black dress to heighten the drama of these small but dazzling gems.
