German Rose Earrings

Having a huge pile of copper components by Kristi Bowman on my work table, inspired me to dive into them and start creating.  I have an art walk show coming up, so the more earrings the better.

Shameless Self-Promotion:
I won these copper pieces in a Facebook auction giveaway that Kristi had. I like the asymmetrical shape and pattern.
 I topped the copper pieces with a few Greek ceramic discs and some lovely vintage, German glass  roses.
I did some wire wrapping down the back of the roses and beneath them to keep them facing forward. To give visual balance to the asymmetrical copper pieces, I added dangles consisting of transparent  Swarovski crystals and Czech glass flowers.

    1. Thanks Ann! It bugs me when earring dangles slip around backwards. ;)
