I adore hardware--especially washers! These simple earrings are made from solid copper washers stamped with a flower design, and glass beads in cool periwinkle nested in copper wire.
Bronze split-lock washers are a particular favorite of mine--the color is luscious! But it takes some real elbow grease to close them. They look fabulous with a subtle hammer texture:
I wrapped the split area with steel wire, but you could probably solder them too. They're deliciously substantial!
