Finally: Something Finished

February 10 - Earrings Done

Sometimes you just keep getting sidetracked. Ever since I finished that marmalade, things have been keeping me from the bench. Not big, important things; just small, annoying chores and errands. Eventually, you do get a break;-)

I started these stud earrings a few weeks ago. Sometimes the materials are my inspiration. In this case, I had a few of these silver discs and square wire rings sitting on my bench. One day, while waiting for a piece that was in the pickle pot, I started manipulating them. This design is the result. I hammered the discs for texture then soldered the rings to wrap them and gave each a tiny silver ball as a finishing touch. I think they are fun.
