This is the second pair of earrings I've made, but the first ones with which I am satisfied.<br />
As this scan no doubt shows, symmetry and I have yet to come to an agreement. I just twist the wire around until it starts to wrap around its base and whatever design happens, happens. That pointy part on the right earring certainly looks perilous, but simple wire filing prevents painful neck-stabbing, so no worries there.<br />
One thing that I like most about this and about the subsequent earrings you will see from me is that I found wire that matches my findings almost exactly. It saved me the trouble of having to make my own and anything that saves me anything is just great.
