Happy New Year to you all! I am so excited and honored to have been asked to be a contributor here on Earrings Everyday. I look forward to sharing my take on earrings...my most favorite things to create! As you will see, I tend to have a very eclectic style and like to incorporate a wide variety of elements and materials.
My inspiration for today's post comes from 2 of my favorite textiles...velvet and brocade...soft, warm, lush...inviting! These etched copper and artisan glass earrings remind me of those textures...I etched the copper discs with a brocade-like swirly design and the glass beads by Jelveh Designs have a very "textile-like" look to them. I purposefully used sterling wire with the copper to bring out the metallic sheen on Jelveh's beads, but accented the earwires with tiny copper balls.
