Simple, elongated and bold style earrings that were fabricated from Sterling Silver with gemstones palette of Aquamarine, Garnet and Black Spinel. I wire wrapped the Spinel briolettes with Gold Filled wire to add a spark of gold accent to the metal. I really adore the included Aquamarine as it has some sort of 'feel' in it and the hue is so wonderful.
Another swirls style earrings from me. These supposed to be elongated earrings that i dream of doing but due to mistake that i made during the process i shorten the length..huhuh..I did not know what happened during the process it took me almost three days to finish these (a lot of filing, re-soldering and tumbling) but the result well worth it. .Pheww

I been keeping these for a year as i don't know what to embellish these beauties with. Then yesterday, i browsed around my work table and found a few 14K Gold Filled beads that waiting to be used. I took the beads and started balled up my thin Argentium Silver wire and dangled the beads to the earrings. I oxidized them to a black gray finish, instead of buffing away the patina i leave it that way as 'black' silver looks so amazing with gold. I tumbled for 15 minutes for high shine finish.
The blacken silver looks mysterious while the gold filled beads add some kind of pop of color to the earrings.
