An Unusual Pair

About this design:

So there I was.... trying to organize my chaos when I came across a scrap of copper that had been fan folded. So much for organizing the chaos. Time to figure out what to do with the folded copper. I cut and crimped the copper a bit more then cut two sort-of-triangles, textured two red brass discs, hung them from some silver chain, put it all together with niobium ear wires and taa-daaa, an unusual pair of ear rings. The folding doesn't show up too well in the photos but they are a fun pair of ear rings.

    They look like a fun pair of earrings…my kind of different!! I admire your metal working skills, something I never acquired.

    Wow. These are so pretty. How did you texture the discs? The combination of metals look great together.

    Thanks for the compliments. I haven’t seen them on anyone yet but as light as they are they should have a lot of movement.

    Very nice! The mix of metal color & motion from the dangling discs is great. Love the folded triangles and how the chain sets inside the bend. :)
