Teal Branches

About this design:

I created a similar pair of earrings a while back with lampwork glass beads. I love them but they border on being too heavy so I decided to try again with some disc beads from Humblebeads.

I cut the top loop off of Vintaj altered blanks, punched holes at either end of the brass pieces, then textured and shaped them for the dangles.

Just listed them in my Etsy shop:


Teal Branches disc beads by Humblebeads; Vintaj Natural brass 41x8.5mm Tags, Jump rings, and earwires; brass spacer beads, and antique brass finish pewter spacers.

    I’ve also been working with this same design element only using copper sheet metal in different shapes. I really like how your altered blanks came out!
