Golden Leaves & Orbs Earrings
I had fun making these earrings, but they proved quite difficult to photograph. Capturing the tone and detail of the balls and leaf charms took many settings and arrangements to produce something I was happy with. I'm still not sure if the pictures do these earrings justice. They may be a simple design, but the movement of the leaves and versatility of the clasp make them unique and very wearable.
These contemporary lightweight earrings are fun and sophisticated. Antiqued bronze wire ball beads are secured on gold-plated brass teardrop hoops and detailed antiqued bronze tone leaf charms dangle below.
These earrings can be worn open with the included ear nuts, so you will never worry about losing them during a night of dancing. And, these earrings can also be worn closed, with the back of wire secured in the ring that attaches the leaf charm to the teardrop hoop, as the last image shows.
These limited edition earrings measure 1 3/4" long.
