New Earrings

Just a quick post today to show you the earrings I have made this week.  Nothing special really, but in keeping with my current tribal vibe.  The first pair look more like a Kitsch tribal style.  I have had these dangles for a long time and I thought this was a great way to use them.

After I have looked at them more, I think I am going to replace that middle bugle bead with more pink beads.  I think they will look better.  Note to self......replace bugle beads with pink.

This pair is more southwestern or American Indian style.  I used some of my braided leather to make a link.  I also used some bright brass rings to make the "rusty" patina connectors.  I did a soft patina on the copper wire just to cut the shine, but didn't want to take it all the way to brown.  I have sealed all the metal with renaissance wax.

I also hammered out some little copper dangles to finish them off.   I hope you like them.

Love those little copper twisty dangles on the ends! Nice touch!

Love the ones on the bottom Jean! Very cleaver use of the leather.

Both pairs are just fabulous. I wish I was more of an ear ring person but I'm more hooked on bracelets than anything else, as you already know!
