Black Magic


I have come out of hibernation finally... looking forward to getting the rest of winter out of the way! I made these earrings back in November, then hit a bit of a wall as far as creativity and inspiration goes (blame the weather!), which is why I haven't been around much.

But... I have lots of projects on the go, and lots of ideas to kick-start the New Year - I am determined to make more, and post more!

Back to these earrings, wire-wrapped on hand-made frames, lots of fine gauge sterling with tiny Hill Tribe faceted seed beads, and wonderful black faceted onyx which have a great sparkle and contrast beautifully against the shiny silver. I've selectively oxidised just the centre of these earrings to show off the twisted wire.

Oh Maz, these are stunning! What an inspiration for me for this new year to get back into wire wrapping!

Marika said...

Btw, forgot to ask you - did you solder the frames on this pair?

Maz Simpson said...

Hi Marika, thank you - and you should definitely keep on wrapping! Yes the frames were soldered on these :)
