I had all these ideas running around through my head, but one idea kept coming to me. So that's the design I went with in the end.
Those awesome rondelles kept screaming at me to use them in a pair of earrings. And they wanted brass, not copper. And who am I to ignore the call?
I had some lovely brass that was already etched, so I pulled out the shears and went to town on some discs. Dapped the discs, and then oxidized them. I also decided to echo a bit of the teal color onto the brass, and so grabbed my Gilder's Paste and there you go, awesome brass accents! And yep, they're large. Larger than I usually make my discs, but that's what's so awesome about it!
The rest of the earrings were easy to design, using brass daisy spacers and handmade brass earwires. That's it, and there ya go! I love these earrings....
Anyway, please go visit the others playing in this awesome blog hop! It was alot of fun, and Sue, thank you so very much for allowing me to play with your lovelies!
