Inspired by designs I've seen both here and other places online, I fiddled around with some practice wire and below is the resulting ear cuff. I'm thinking I'll call it either "Music To My Ears" or "Treble Cuff". It still needs some work, but I think the basic shape is there.The end tip of the clef got a little wonky. I think I may move the blue aventurine stone to the center of the clef rather than having it near the top.

Your thoughts?

I love the way this looks as a piece of jewelry, and don't think you should change it. But to may eye, the shape loses it's meaning a little when worn. I think it may need the top loop to be bigger and more elongated. You might try varying the size of the loops for future pieces.

I really like it! I almost purchased something similar on Etsy. I'm an ear cuff fanatic....I just bought a pair today, haha.

I agree that the stone might look better in the center, but it doesn't look bad where it's currently at, either.  Smiley

Love this! I think it would be cute with the bead in the center or with another bead on the bottom. Keep up the good work!

Very cute!

I do agree with the others though, that the bead at the top throws it off a bit. What about a slightly smaller (2-3mm) bead at the bottom, in the center of the spiral?
