Making jewelry can be a lot like painting in the sense that it goes through an ugly phase somewhere during the process. When you paint a portrait, at some point the face just looks like a bunch of blocks with a funky expression. When I'm working on jewelry at a point like this, it's full of saw marks and file marks and it hasn't been polished or antiqued yet. But just like a portrait comes to life, so will these rough looking things.
Keep your eyes open for a sale beginning this Saturday! I'll be adding a limited amount of these earrings as "made to order" items. More information to come.
