I like a challenge (well, from time to time!) and this was one of them - Cold forging mirror image sterling silver dangles for these earrings is harder than you think! When you hammer down wire, the wire expands and the shape wants to go in all sorts of directions. Being able to control the process is key in order to obtain two fairly identical size/shape dangles. It takes knowledge, lots of patience and dexterity...and I managed to get it done.
So, this is another pair in this challenge that I gave myself :)
100% handcrafted by myself, these cold forged Zig Zagging style sterling silver earrings catch the light and your imagination at the same time. Absolutely perfect for any occasion. Dress 'em up or down, they're right there with you!
These earrings measure 2 1/4 inches from the top of my handcrafted sterling silver ear wires.
Note: they look sort of black in the last picture (hanging from my plexiglass model) but that's only because they are reflecting my black camera. They're very shiny, textured (hammered) bright sterling silver.
