52 earrings: #51 Aged Spirals

Only one more pair to go! Patinated copper and lampwork glass this time.

#51 Aged Spirals

13.12.16_E51_AgedSpirals_01

I got out the heftier copper wire and made a pair of hammered spirals with two of my lampwork glass beads on them. The beads have a mix of green frit on a misty translucent background. I made big rounded earwires, put them in liver of sulphur to patinate until black, then tumbled them for a bit for a gunmetal finish before giving the surfaces a quick going-over with a sanding sponge to bring back a little copper.

52 earrings: #50 Emperor’s Orange

A very bright combination this time!

#50 Emperor’s Orange

I paired my bright orange swily lampwork cylinders with wooden discs painted a deep lapis or cobalt blue. They’re wire-wrapped onto large rounded copper earwires.

52 earrings: #49 Bounty

This pair use a few components from the Mini Mojo Box I got from Lynn. (I wrote about it for the Craft Pimp blog).

#49 Bounty

13.12.02_E49_Bounty_02

The swirly amber brown lampwork beads are mine. The little dangles use beads from the mojo box – I took out a few carnelian chips, little Swarovski crystals and some of the seed bead mix, and wired them onto small copper headpins. I wire-wrapped the beads and made the round earwires with larger-than-usual hoops.

52 earrings: #48 Terracotta

This pair are copper and warm browns.

#48 Terracotta

13.12.01_E48_Terracotta_01

The rounded earwires have a little leopardskin jasper round wrapped onto them, and the dangle has two of my lampwork spacers, one terracotta, one cream with silver leaf, plus an Indian agate long nugget bead at the bottom. All wire-wrapped in copper.

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.
