I've been playing around a bit the past week, and came up with a pair of sweet earrings that give a nod to the whole 80s thing going on right now. (Note: Molly Ringwald need not look - they're not THAT 80s)  Grin





What do you think? Hideous - to be relegated to the dress-up box? Or fun?

Cheers,

Those are great! Did you do the big wrapped loops? I have such trouble with those, I ALWAYS ding the wire. They look great. What are the polka dog discs?

Thanks!
Dorion, yep. I'm only learning wiring techniques, so its taking me a fair slice of time to get them looking decent! The discs are resin coated fabric...

Ha, I said "polka dog." I'd say your wire skills are coming along quite nicely!
