Here are some earrings I made yesterday.
Inspired by some Art Deco tiles that I remember lining the corridors at school! I don't know why the tiles popped into my head yesterday afternoon, but they did, and I got a fab idea for a honking great pair of earrings.
This happens to me a lot.
I'll be doing something and my mind will wander, and as I day dream, something will pop into my head that gives me an idea for a jewellery design. In the past when it's happened I've said to myself, "that shape would make a fab ring/earrings/necklace", worked out in my head how I would make it, and then forgotten all about it!
Recently, I decided that if inspiration came, and I was near to my tools and sketch book, I would go and see if I could transform the idea into a piece of jewellery there and then. Yesterday I did, and it was so much fun.
Next time around, I would modify this design slightly. Making the earrings each from one piece of wire, rather than two. Just to gi-gi them up that little bit more.
But I love 'em.
They are made from copper and Peruvian opals.
