Back to Basics

I have a new pair of earrings listed in the shop that was sort of a back to basics approach for me. I haven't done much intricate wire work in a while and I wanted to make a pair of earrings with the filigree that I used to make.

I have to admit I was very rusty. The first two attempts were not good, my frame wouldn't hold it's shape, I couldn't get any of the elements to match or to fit together correctly. I was getting very frustrated. But in the end I think it worked out alright.

And I just love the blue color!
