Another Pair of Earrings

I have finished another pair of earrings, along with a matching pendant. I feel like I'm making progress.

I used Savoy dichroic glass for these and as the photo shows, they reflect different colors depending on the angle. The dichroic glass has a clear glass cap and I always feel that helps give depth to a piece. The pattern reminds me of ancient hieroglyphs. I'm calling this one "The Ancients".

Lots of irons in the fire this weekend. A new design just went in the kiln and I'm working on my first wire wrapped ring. Hope everyone had a great weekend.

Hi Kathleen, These pieces are exquisite. I looked at your other post showing the earrings and think they're beautiful too even though you thought they should be mirror images. The fact that they weren't makes them even more unique! Are you planning on posting them on Etsy?

Hi Janelle,
Thank you so much.

Yes, I do plan on posting these on Etsy, I just need to get better pictures of them before I do.

Thank you for asking. And I really appreciate your feedback on these and the other pair. :)

Yes I think these are beautiful, too. What is the progress you feel you've made from the first pair you posted to these, I'm curious?

Hi Karen,

My progress on these:
> A little more symmetrical.
> The actual wire wrap, the end result more closely matched the idea I had for these.

I have a concept that I want to get to with earrings and each one I work on is getting me a little bit closer, I think. :)
