Swing and Sway…

It’s been a while since I’ve made a new pair of earrings.  In fact, it’s been quite a while since I’ve even worn earrings! Neckpieces are what I’ve been making and wearing for the past few months. They are somewhat elaborate and adding earrings to the mix just felt like too much. But for everyday wear, earrings are often enough on their own and I wanted to make a new pair using carnelian stones that had been languishing in my stash for some time.  I like asymmetry and feel the combination of the carnelian bullet juxtaposed with the 10mm faceted carnelian drop works beautifully!  Oxidized square silver wire finished with “nail heads” ends that have been bent and wrapped lend an industrial panache that I find interesting.  At 2.25”in length, this lightweight swinging pair are a nice addition to my collection!
