I was just talking about these earrings, with some other people, and decided to show them here. I know that there are many seed beaders and I have seen some gorgeous wire work. I am not a wire wrapper, but this idea was generated more out of 'want' then knowing what I am doing!  Grin



I think this idea may be just as good if the twisting wire was not 'wrapped'!

Erin I LOVE these.  They remind me of the Steampunk genre, absolutely cool and classy with a funky edge to them.  Beautiful work as always!

Whoa, I love your take on these! I never thought about the 'Steampunk' relationship...but I DO see it!

Thanks Mihana!

I'd prefer them without the wire wrapped around them, myself. But lovely!

I like the wire spiraling around, and also the texture that the wire-wrapping gives it. I think you could go without it if the pattern of the peyote stitched part was bolder (more contrast).
