Steampunk Flower Earrings

Hey!  I actually made some jewelry!  A pair of earrings.  Yes, that's right!  Here are my Steampunk Flower Earrings.  






They are made from two copper gears that are domed, enameled, and assembled with a little enamel flower.  They measure 5/8" ... and you'll find them at www.barbaralewis.etsy.com with another lonely soul ... the Jasmine bracelet.  But my goal is to make more jewelry ... I really need to ... for my sanity!  I look forward to sharing other studio creations with you!  :-)  

But before I go, www.paintingwithfireartwear.com is running a sale on Nut, White and Mandarin Orange, transparent enamels ---- 15% off.  Barbara

Oh golly do I love the layers of colour in these! Yes, to making for preservation of sanity. It's sort of essential isn't it?

Steampunk isn't my thing but these are FANTASTIC! I love the colors on the little flowers and pairing them with the gears really frames them nicely :)

These are gorgeous Barbara, the colour, the shape, and the little flower all combined together so beautifully. I guess it would be hard to find the time to make jewelry with you busy schedule, but hopefully you'll be able to snatch a few hours here and there to play.
