AJE Earring Challenge Week 3 - Love Is In the Air

For Art Jewelry Elements Earring Challenge #3, I decided to go with another Valentine's Day inspired earrings.  I used 16g copper wire which I balled and quenched the ends to get that bright beautiful deep pink colors.  Formed the heart shape, attached red fresh water pearls and the cute copper heart charms I got from beadsandbabble on Etsy.  Hammered the wire to add texture, applied liver of sulfur to bring out the contrast and ta da!


Mahalo for visiting!  Have a creative and inspiring week!

Kumi ♥

Happy hopping to all the other talented artists!

  8. Beautifully done! I'm just starting to learn wireworking. Wish I could spend a few hours at your bench watching you create - and Hawaii would be awfully nice this time of year!
