Swing is the Thing

About this design:

One of my bridge partners brought a sterling cuff to bridge, and asked if I could make a pair of earrings to go with it. The cuff is stunning: wide sterling, oxidized in the center, with teardrop MOP inlaid in a starburst pattern. I am almost embarrassed to say that I FINALLY have oxidized my first piece of sterling! I hope she likes these....


Sterling wire, 20 and 26 gauge, MOP 4 mm rounds, sterling chain

    Love the triangular design of these and they probably have lots of movement. Bet your bridge friend is very happy indeed!
