The Bronze Age cometh!
So, today I sold these earrings on Folksy, but at the request of the lovely customer involved, I revamped them so that instead of silver there are in an 'antique bronze' finish. I've never worked with anything but silver before, and I can only wear sterling silver in my ears now (punishment for years of abuse wearing trash-y earrings in my teens!), but now .... I really liked how these little lovelies looked, and I'd had to buy more than I needed of antique bronze findings, so I'm thinking I'll do some more. What do you think?
They bronze version look very baroque to me and remind me a bit of Venice somehow. I'm thinking of a little bracelet now, with the same combination of brown glass hearts as charms, carnelian beads and watermelon antique bronze spacers.
And thanks again to Jackie, for commissioning these, for sparking the creative idea and for buying! What a great customer :-)
