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!

#32 Snaketrails

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.
