No. 9 Copper Beauties

I’ve always been interested in jewelery made out of materials you find in a hardware store. For these earrings I used copper wire and washers. You could probably substitute o-rings for the washers to make the whole contraption a little lighter. As to the findings, I didn’t have any matching earring findings on hand and made these out of some copper wire bits. They are great for the pictures and it was fun to make them, but my ears are unhappy with this type of metal. I’ll just have to hunt around for the perfect kind of findings until I can wear these.

The Resolution

Here is my project for the year: I want to make 99 different pairs of earrings over the course of the next 12 months. That averages about 2 pairs a week. We’ll see how I fare with this resolution.
