Experiments and Mistakes = Earrings

A couple of weeks ago I bought some silver 'pearl' wire (beaded wire) with intentions to experiment.

I was not entirely happy with my first attempt (I was being a bit precious with the wire - it's really expensive here) - although I liked the colour combination, the earring looked rather small and unfinished, and I chipped the pottery shard when I was setting it... so I put it aside:

Yesterday, I was making some copper flower earrings, with a pottery shard in the centre. Oxidised black - I quite like them. Simple but cute.

Then I suddenly thought - what would happen if I combined the flowers with those unfinished bits from last week?

And that's how these earrings came to be:

Silver, pottery shard and coral earrings, oxidised black

And this is what they look like on:

Quite a lot of work, but I'm happy with the result!
