Earrings Wk #3 - Something.....different

So, Week 3 is upon me and I HAVE created week 3's earrings WOOHOO!

This week,  I made the copper connectors - which I've seen similar things around here and there.  It was FUN!  I loved just winding up, down, tight, loose, and the REAL challenge was making them the same length. =)  I've had these AMAZING etched dragon scales for a few months now, just waiting for the right project.   I like the cragginess of the copper pieces and the contrast with the silver scales.  I think they're just awesome! =)

I, also, made the ear wires.  I couldn't decide if I liked the silver (on right) or the copper (on left) better.  I think I like the silver wire with the blue flower.  What do you think? 

Week 3 complete!  Raise the roof!


  1. I love the wire wrapping - messy always looks different. I think that copper looks better with blues and greens but it's just a personal opinion. Silver also looks good, especially since the dangles are in matching grey :)

  2. I'm no help on the silver vs copper...both look great with greens and blues depending on if you want a warmer or cooler look so to speak and since I love mixed metals that really doesn't help narrow it down either! HA! As for the earrings in general loving them! the messy wrapped links and the etched drops are wonderful together.

  3. I love copper with blues and greens. Well done!

  4. I have to vote copper on this one because of your fun copper wrapped links! Those are great... and I bet it was a challenge to get them even. (that's the sort of thing that makes my head explode!)

  5. I too like the colored pair best, though both are lovely. I can't wait to see your next ones.
