Dread Pirate Earrings

These skull and circle earrings feature my metalwork and Andrew Thornton’s bronze clay skull pieces. I love them and think they are just adorable. I darkened them in lover of sulphur and hung them from soldered, flattened and darkened brass circles. I love it when the brass gets blue and green patina in places. Heavy wire wrapping holds the two components together. I call them Dread Pirate earrings as a reference to one of my favorite movies – The Princess Bride.
