My swap partner was the lovely Theresa Fosdick of Thoughtful Notions. Theresa makes really lovely jewelry, while you are at her blog be sure to check out her Etsy shop. She made my earring with really cool techniques she learned from Richard Salley at Art is You. I am honored to be the recipient of such lovely little works of art. I have worn these often since I have received them. Without further ado, here is what she sent (drum roll...)
Aren't these yummy?! I LOVE them. The silvery parts are made from stamped solder.
Aren't the details just amazing?
This is as close as I come to modeling, lol.
The earrings I sent Theresa were mostly components that I made myself. Copper discs that I hammered and enameled, enameled copper tube beads and handmade earwires. I added some Swarovski crystals for a little bling. Head on over to her blog to see them, the link is above.
Be sure to hop on over to everyone's blogs to see all the great things that were created. Here's the list so get hoppin :)
