Floral earrings necklace and bracelet

Post  Odonata on Mon May 28, 2012 1:03 am

Been making some earrings to go with a previous commission (which now I come to think of it I didn't show or tell).
Dead easy to make with a preformed ear stud and some preformed metal flowers. All I had to do was wire wrap 2 swarovski crystal droppers and link the lot together with jump rings.


This is the earrings how I envisioned them being. Symetrical and almost angel-like in their shape:

This is the finished earrings as the client wanted them with extra flowers. A bit to heavy and clunky I feel but, hey, the customer is always right I believe.

And this is the original bracelet made 2 years ago alongside the commissioned necklace made last month.

Wow- these are lovely! I'm also surprised by how 'big' people like their jewellery, I would have been on your side with the less is more thing but it's a wonderful lesson on other people's taste I think. I did some repairs a couple of weeks back and all the jewellery was so big and clunky and over the top it was gross but they were her most favourite pieces ever ever.

Beautiful missus!

im a more is more girl myself. Especially with rings and earrings. The bigger the better. As I am short and fat with no neck I know that is so wrong. When I dress up, I often end up looking like a decorated Christmas tree. One part of me would like to be stylish and classy but I always end up looking like an aged hippy

Thanks for that guys. I like one large statement piece if I can find one to match the outfit.
On a humorous note, I wore my huge silver seashell necklace the other night at a wedding reception and got only 1 wow comment. But was gutted to find out when I got home that I had it on back to front and none of the shell detail could be seen. What a twit!

Thanks Embarassed I made it about 3 years ago but it only comes out on rare occasions. Sometimes I'm tempted to dismantle it to use the hill tribe silver in other bits cos it's hugely expensive and it seems a waste of resources. But then I think,"NNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!" Very Happy

Keep the cutters away from that lovely creation! It is always good to have a real statement piece ready to go at a moment's notice!

Embarassed awh thanks again folks. It only crosses my mind to disassemble it but my mind says "No". I won't actually do it. It's a piece I'll keep cos it lifts any plain classic top or dress into a designer outfit. One day I should make a bracelet to match it.
