I love that word! It describes how I feel about the creation/evolution of these earrings!
I had etched a big copper disk a couple of weeks ago when I was writing this post over at Art Jewelry Elements. This past weekend, it was on my beading table at exactly the right moment when I needed something pretty to fasten a length of leather cord to a chain necklace for my Bead Soup piece. I cut the center strip out of the disk and rolled it up into a tube!
Fast forward to last night, as I suddenly remembered that today was indeed my day to post here. I saw the curled up scraps from cutting the center strip out of the disk and was like,"hmm, these are to pretty to ditch...I wonder if I can use them for earrings?"
So I did! At first that were going to hang horizontally, with chain connecting them to the earwires, but after turning them around a bit, I liked the mirror image vertical look much better. To bring the bling, I added some faceted chalcedony briolettes in a finish called "Mystic Mango" by the seller!
Add a fun, flowy spring blouse and your favorite jeans, and you are ready to go!
These will be up in my shops later today!
