In these earrings, the wire wraps aren’t just holding it all together, they play a part in the design.
Wire spirals make bead caps for the crackled glass beads and funky messy wraps almost have the appearance of another bead above the grey oval stones.
On the left you can see the earrings in their shiny metal state. On the right you see how a patina in Liver of Sulfur and then a polish of the high points really brings out the details.
Enjoy the video and happy creating. 🙂
