Finally Some Textured Pieces....
My grand plans for playing with texture were side-tracked this last month with family stuff! Funny how 'life' seems to get in the way of creativity. I did manage to finish the silver earrings pictured above. I am really happy with them. Another first for me (although a fairly simple accomplishment) was making the ear wires to accompany these earrings. In the past I have always used pre-fabricated ear wires, however I want to start creating earrings with unique ear wires to add to their particular design. The earrings above are domed and soldered to a flat back plate. They have been tarnished and brushed.
A similar technique was used on the bead pictured below. This bead is a combination of copper and silver. It was my 'expirimentation' piece so I am not thrilled with it - the design needs a bit of refining. I will try a few more and incorporate them into some chains.
