“Heavy Lotus Earrings”


Description from EPBCornell: Delicate earlobes need not apply. Only thick, fleshy lobes that can take a good, prolonged tug could handle this design.
The copper goes with the outer beads; the gold, the inner. The bead caps fit over the narrow end of the drops. The drop would dangle from a headpin at the bottom. Metal nugget spacer could go above or below the lotus coin, or both. Not sure if I'd run one headpin thru all the beads, or just thru the drop & bead cap and use wire or headless pins to make link(s) of coin & spacer(s) for more motion.

    How lovely these sound. I hope you post them when they are done! I’d use two pins for more motion if I were making them.

    Beautiful ideas here! For smaller ear lobes, you could use copper and gold earstuds and stabilizing flat earrnuts for the backs.
