Handmade Earwires

I completely love handmade earwires.  I just think they add an element of specialness that commercial earwires cannot touch.  Don’t get me wrong, I use plenty of commercial earwires and thank whoever makes them.  But still, handmade components make such a difference.

These earrings are really very simple.  A flat oval matte finish aqua bead is the star of the show.  But I think the supporting cast – the handmade headpin and earwires are what lift it over the top.

    Sometimes there is more beauty in simplicity. I think that’s the case here. I like the nice clean lines. I don’t know why, but they make me think of the ocean.

      Thank you Claire. Sometimes when I make a simple design, I wonder if I should add more to it. Your comment makes me realize that sometimes simple is beautiful and exactly right.
