52 earrings: #47 Red Berries

I used another pair of my lampwork headpins for these earrings.

#47 Red Berries

My headpins are the round red base of the earrings, on stainless steel which has a dark patina from the heat. I left them dark rather than polishing them up and put the fritty red and white beads on them before wrapping the rest of the wire into a loop. I made the round earwires in sterling silver with little red Czech glass beads wrapped on. I patinated the silver with liver of sulphur and then tumbled it to give the shiny antique silver finish here.

52 earrings: #45 Green & Yellow

Kumihimo and copper.

#45 Green & Yellow

13.11.03_E45_Green&Yellow_03

I wanted to do some different shapes with my kumihimo braids, so here I have braids in bright greens and yellow, hanging in horseshoe shape from chunky copper wire-wrapped bails. I’d made a few of the little hammered wire doodles previously and hung one in the centre of each, with a few jumprings to let them move. I made elongated copper earwires.
