For the Arts Faire

About this design:

I've been invited to submit an application & pictures to the Englewood (OH) Arts Fair in August. Trying to bump up my game a little and make some modern, far-out kind of designs. :)

I have some earrings to photograph too.

Vintaj patinas (LB), brass & copper blanks, various beads. Some hand-made clasps from Artistic Wire (LB).

    These are lovely! I especially like the red-and-orange one (love the colors and the spiral) and the turquoise one with the square focal (but would like to see a wire around the other turquoise bead in this one).
