52 earrings: #35 Autumn Embers

These earrings use chunkier copper wire and some of my lampwork spacers.

I used some lampwork spacers I had that were variously-struck shades of orange. They’re spaced out by little wooden rondelles. I wire-wrapped the frames in copper wire, double-wrapped the tops and added copper earwires.

52 earrings: #34 Bright Arrow

#34 Bright Arrow

This was a 16-strand kumihimo pattern where I had the marudai instructions but did it on a disc. It has little arrows in white, yellow, orange and russet brown, surrounded in blue. I wire-wrapped the earrings in flame-patinated copper and the earrings were darkened with liver of sulphur and then tumbled.

52 earrings: #33 Bluest Blues

#33 Bluest Blues

Been very busy so these are a simple design. These are sterling silver with a pair of my lampwork beads – ribbed bicones in transparent blue. They’re free-dangling and move easily.

52 earrings: #32 Snaketrails

This pair have been sitting about waiting for me to first LOS them and then tumble them, but here we are!

I hammered the copper rings for texture and wire-wrapped a pair of my lampwork beads – these two were a go at olive tiger beads. They’ve got little hollow copper beads on the dangles alongside the lampwork. I made the earwires and put everything together, then used liver of sulphur to give a full black patina, then put them in the tumbler to polish them back up to something more like a warm gunmetal/dark bronze.
