Curow Earrings are another example of jewelry designing on the fly (and one of the things I like about jewelry making). These started out as a very clear picture of what I wanted to do, but several of the elements didn't work out - the hinge, for example, needed to be modified to function and hang how I wanted. They originally began as hoops. For me they didn't have the right look and so I altered them to hang, changed up the earwire and oxidized them. I'm pleased with what did eventually result. I may attempt something similar, but this pair is a one-of-a-kind and now available in my Etsy shop.
