Oxidized copper earrings
Just a quick post. I've been getting ready for a show in Atlanta (the Atlanta Dogwood Festival in Piedmont Park, if you're in the area). The oxidized copper tube beads I've been working with lend themselves well to making structures for earrings, so I've just finished several new earring designs.They're all just combinations of tetrahedrons and octahedrons, but by using different length tubes you get interesting structures. The ear wires are oxidized sterling silver. I like to do the kind of post that needs an earring back to hold it on. That's because the earrings are so open that I don't want an extra wire hanging down behind the ear, the way you'd have with something like a French wire. So far they all have mirror image pieces for the other ear, but I'd like to do some where the 2 earrings are close, but not identical.
