I had gotten these little antique buckles quite awhile ago and decided to use them in this pair of earrings. I really like making assemblage earrings but they seem to present some design problems that take some creative pondering.
I had a bit of difficulty with the one on the right hand side as the wire was sliding too easily.
My solution was to add a bit of waxed nylon for the wire to grip to which seems to be working
The enameled daggers are my own. I'm going to be putting some of this shape up for sale very shortly in my supply shop www.numinosity.etsy.com
The earwires are by Lucy Haslam of Faerystones
Thanks so much for looking.
