Haven't made anything new lately. I suppose I want to step back for a while and figure out what I really want to make.
I came across a pair of earrings, neglected to bookmark it, now I can't find it...grumbles... It was a very simple design, two large Tahitian (I think) pearls, on 18KT gold wire, I suppose they had to ream the pearls out some as they were strung directly on the wire. They had a small rosary loop on the bottom, and the top part of the wire formed the earring wire itself.
On the bottom, they had gem grade aquamarine briolettes. Fairly sure these were side-drilled. I don't want to make them with aquamarines, I just liked the idea of integrating large pearls with gold wire.
Here's something else that's been on my mind. You'll have to excuse the general silliness of this video...what I want to show is that gorgeous silver coin necklace the dancer wears:
