I am preparing for an earring workshop for next weekend in Northern Virginia. Pulling out class samples for the students to see the variation in designs that can be done. Here they are above with just the metal armature and dangling gemstones.
Above are the earrings coiled with wire..
or wire-wrapped with rondelles..
and again, simply the wire form with pearl drops for a touch of elegance…On a side note, these photos were taken with the iPhone 6 camera and I can’t get over the amazing photos they take!
