These are the first earrings I've ever made. They're made with sterling silver wire and two shells that look like oval pearls. I even made the earwire by myself!
I feel so proud!  Cheesy
Any comments / suggestions?

those are gorgeous!  i love them...!

i used to work with wire, but lately i've been working mostly with beads.  i've never worked with wire like *that* though.  you've inspired me to give it another go.  what kind of wire and tools are you using??

I used sterling silver wire Half hard, gauge 22.
I used a wire jig and som pliers that are made for working with wire.
I love that jig! I always looked for something like it but it is very difficult to find where I live (Italy). It's a must have for all wire jewelry lovers! Wink
