After being off the jewelry wagon for about six weeks while in Oregon, it was nice to get back to my studio today.  Since I didn’t have any great design ideas, I decided to do something quick and simple and came up with these earrings:

After tracing ovals on 22 gauge sterling silver, I cut out them out with a jeweler’s saw, then filed, sanded, and hammered them.  I then soldered a jump ring onto each.  I attached them to sterling silver leverbacks, and voila!  A cute pair of earrings that look really cool when worn.  They’re also very light, which can sometimes be a problem with large, dangly earrrings.
