Title: "chandelier tiara" and matching earings
Post by: dinosaur on July 25, 2006 04:38:32 PM
let me know what you think!

these are photos of my "chandelier tiara" and matching earings. i made them today. it took about 3 hours for all pieces combined. they are made of silver-colored copper wire, glass beads, and cast... some kind of metal... pieces (for the hearts and the chandelier bits). it was loosely inspired by the vivienne westwood orb that my friend kiwii gave to me (photo also included). this one's for you, kiwii! oh, and also for janna, the power-walking princess! <3 oh, and my panda's a tiara model!

thank you, my dear! yeah, ever since i was a little child i've had a fascination with chandelier/dangling earrings. i think i'll start wearing them if i get my ears re-pierced (out of irony, of course!)

Yay for the Power-Walking Princess! You know I love these. I like the asymetrical design with the beads, the colors, and the sort of haphazard wiring. It's elegant but with a funky edge. Get down 8)!

yeah, i know you've seen this one already... i ended up making one for kiwi... do you think that i should put that one up, too? it has the same color idea... after all, they both were inspired by the necklace... just so long as she doesn't see it up here.....
