nanette earringsLengths of sterling silver wire were looped around to create silver tangles or knots at the bottom of these earrings.  For whatever reason, working with metal has made working with wire seem less intimidating, so I’ve been doing some experimentation with wire.  The trick with these was to make the second tangle look reasonably close in size and shape to the first and to keep from kinking the wire.

After practicing with copper wire, I got the knack of it and then moved on to make the earrings in silver.  I named them Nanette and hope the lovely young lady who now owns these earrings enjoys wearing them.
