I've been playing with jewelry again. I just finished these:
I found the onyx hoops in a beading store and couldn't resist buying them. A little silver-coated copper wire and some fishhooks later, and I've got myself a new pair of earrings!
Here is how they look on, for scale:
Working with the wire was harder than I expected but it definitely lends itself to lots of interesting applications. I got about 15 ideas while bending the wire around to get it to look like I wanted, and I have leftover wire after finishing these so I may play at making some rings or something . . .
Today while in the garment district buying buttons (yes, again) I also bought some ribbon to make headbands. . . because clearly I really do need more hobbies. I simply have nothing to do to occupy my free time. Seriously.
