Crazy long colorful earrings!
I posted a free-form wire fibula tutorial over at Art Jewelry Elements this past Saturday...you should really check out AJE if you don't go there regularly...lots of cool stuff in the works, but I digress! Playing with the wire got me thinking about some other fun things to make with free-form shapes, and I came up with these earrings.
The wire components were all ready to go, and I knew I wanted to incorporate these juicy red-orange Czech glass slices I got from ArteBella Surplus, but really wanted to do the unexpected. After perusing my lampwork box of goodies, I spied a couple of borosilicate beauties I acquired from my fellow Frederick artist, Julie Delaney. A very cool, sea green with hints of rusty brown!
Okay...I couldn't think of a name for these...maybe you can suggest one in the comments!
