52 earrings: #3 Tangerine Tangles

I have some different types of rubber tubing and have been meaning to do something like this for a while. Inspired by Yvonne Irvin-Faus, who also sells the tubing and all kind of other bright components.

#3 Tangerine Tangles

Brass wire and orange tubing. These aren’t my usual style AT ALL and are part of what I’m wanting to do with this challenge. I deliberately didn’t try to make the freeform tangles the same shape. I made the earwires rounder than usual to go with the tangles (am also going to try some different earwire designs, these were just a very quick variation). I have some plans to play with the design further, with more visible wire-wrapping, perhaps adding dangles…

    These are beautiful! We love their super-bold, contemporary style, and the sumptuous oranges! Must have been very fiddly – but completely worth it!
