i have to show these off. finally i think i have perfected my "horseshoe" earrings - i had posted the first attempts in march but they just didn't seem to work. today i had a lot of time to fool around with the design and some scrap wire and voila! my new favorite earrings! lightweight but quite substantial, shiny and perfectly balanced, i think these would be suitable for almost any occasion. except for maybe sleeping. they're a little too pretty to be hidden! i'll be making a set in copper, brass and gold filled, so watch this space! it surprises me that you can do this with just a simple design, pliers and sterling silver.
