Snake Vertebrae Earrings?
These earrings are using snake vertebrae. I think they look like stars or butterflies....just pretty cool. I use gemstones. I'm not real familiar with gemstones so I don't know all the names. I know one is jade and one is a type of shell that's pretty special. All the earring have hypoallergenic ear wires. These are all $15 each
These have Chinese coins and I think they look really neat. The one pair has brass backing and the other has flame painted copper
I'm learning to enamel and it's a new thing and I got really frustrated. I did find out the torch head was not firing correctly...wasn't hot enough. It's still new and I'm not getting results to share yet. But, with the frustration I needed to make something I knew so I did these cold connection earrings that I learned from Mary Hetts a couple years ago. I'll share the enameling later!
