Icicle Earrings are one of my favorite designs. I have worn the original pair for about a year. This can be embarrassing since as a jewelry artist, one would expect that I own more than a single pair of earrings. Because they are my favorite, I’d like to share how I create these earrings.
I start with a coil of raw silver flat wire.
I cut two matching lengths of silver.
Let’s remove the burs using a file.
Next, oxidize the earring with Black Max.
Polish away excess oxidization, leaving the textured marks oxidized.
It’s progressing as planned, I’ll pick out a couple of pearls as accents.
.Okay…..the earrings are complete!!!!
I hope you enjoyed my first blog-demo. Just to let you know, that pretty french manicure you see in the pictures, well its a thing of the past, manicured nails and jewelry making don’t mix!
