Rosy, Posy Hoops
I have been wanting to create some hoop earrings for a long time, but was a bit nervous about making the earwire part and making sure they closed securely, but weren't hard to take on and off. I finally just sat down and played until they worked! These are my rosy, posy hoop earrings...for some reason I had "ring around the rosy, pocket full of posies" on a loop in my head while I was making these!
The posies are layered copper components that were tortured into submission by me, then enameled. I wrapped them onto the hoops so they face forward. I am in the process of putting together a quick little tutorial on these headpins with a twist...made especially for wrapping! Stay tuned ;)
I created a little ensemble on Polyvore that I thought these would go great with...a very romantic, soft and feminine look...perfect for warm summer evenings!
