Just a quick post today. I have a strand of the most gorgeous natural turquoise beads; flat disks with varying shades of rich color just begging for a project. I haven't figured out what to do with them yet, but snatched two of them for these earrings. It was very satisfying to use at least a couple, and now I'll be thinking more seriously about a design for them.
The sterling silver disks in these earrings are cut from sheet metal and formed to this shape. They are 5/8" wide and have a light hammered texture. Not including the hand made earring wires, the earrings are just over 1.5" long. They are here in the online store.
Thanks for coming -- stop by again tomorrow to see what day 5 brings!
