Metal Ruffles

I have been having a blast experimenting lately with foldforming metal, after my sweet hubby gave me Charles Lewton-Brain's fabulous book Foldforming for our anniversary.   There is something so satisfying about taking a piece of raw metal and torturing it into submission!   These earrings started out as leaves, but I decided I would form them around my ring mandrel and make hoop earrings.  I think they turned out pretty well!




I envision wearing these with all kinds of outfits, but I always like copper with neutrals...and I would die for these Old Gringo cowboy boots!

I will definitely be making more... Find these and more of my eclectic earrings and other jewelry items at my website...Melismatic Art Jewelry!

  1. These earrings are my favorite! I love the organic results of fold-forming. They look like pieces plucked off the forest floor.

  4. Fantastic earrings. Great job with foldforming. Love the little touch of the bead on the earwire. Love the outfit you put together, too.

  5. I love the boots as well, and I went looking for them on-line. Looks like I'll be down one kidney soon. ;)

    LOVE the earrings.
