Who's Got the Buckle?

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

The earwires are by Lucy Haslam of Faerystones

Thanks so much for looking.

    1. Thanks, Loralee, I was a little late adding the text but thanks for looking!

  2. Kim, these are so much fun!! Great re-purpose and your numisticks are yummy. Love them.

    1. Thanks Janine, I do appreciate your kind comments

  3. Kim, the buckles! What a wonderful find! The brighter colored sticks work so well. Thanks for the idea of the waxed cord. . . I've tried using wire and it rarely works well. As always, I love 'em!

  4. Nice job Kimberly, always a fan of re-purposing, they are lovely and dripping with character, ☺

  5. So very clever and using the waxed linen was brilliant

  6. I have to say, that waxed nylon on the right pair absolutely makes this pair - wootie-woot!!!
