Frivolous Ear Rings

About this design:

It's h-ll to be bored. So just any little old piece of wire can be used for amusement. I made two frivolous pairs of amusements to combat the boredom. I don't do boredom very well.

They sorta remind me of weird puzzle pieces.

    Glad you like my weird wire ear rings. They were fun to make. I used 18ga wire for them. Since they won’t be subject to wear and tear 18 is a good gauge. :D

    Completely agree with the boredom statement! I never would have thought of this and find myself fearing to even try it. Artistic freedom is NOT a trait I have much of. Congrats- these are cool.
