These lovely ladies were created with my fancy new jeweler's hammers and 20 gauge sterling silver wire. They feature a translucent brown glass bead mottled with green and 4mm crystals with a yellowish tint.
The wire is hammered thin and flat at the bottom to form paddles. Moving up from the bead the silver is formed into a C curve, then hammered flat and textured with small divots.
The ear wires are also hand formed with 22 gauge wire, hammered and accented with a wire wrapped crystal. Total length is 3.3 inches.
