Mixed Media - Resin - Metal - Cosmos Earrings - White Background2_edited-2My hydraulic press and a floral-themed pancake die were used to create these playful earrings. Made of patinaed sterling silver and 18k gold bimetal (I love the rich amber tones and flashes of blue at the center!), they swing and sway from hammer-textured 18-gauge wire. I had initially thought of filling the bezels at the center of each flower with polymer clay, but opted for resin instead. Measuring 1” in width and 2” in length, these earrings are titled “Cosmos”. The petal forms remind me of the Cosmos flower (a member of the daisy family) and the resin-filled bezels, which contain 2mm Swarovski crystal bicones and “fairy dust” (a.k.a fine glitter) remind me of a galaxy filled with billions of stars!
