52 earrings: #47 Red Berries

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

#47 Red Berries

13.11.24_E47_RedBerries

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.
