Argentium Silver with 14K Gold Filled Beads Earrings - Golden Noir
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.
