Handmade Silver Earrings for a wedding
Based on the feedbacks and comments (thanks to you guys, my dear artists friends!!! You guys are amazing!!!) I have gathered for S, my client, she decided that the first version design was too big for her. I’ve kept the core components of the design, i.e. the lotus petal’s like shapes, and restructured the rest. For the petals instead of using purely 20ga wires, I have used 20ga for the petal’s frames, and 22ga for the inner swirls, unlike the previous version, all Cubic Zirconias donuts have been replaced with with white Swarovski Crystal Pearls, faceted Rock Crystal donuts and smooth round Rock Crystals.
As for the top part of the design – basically I got it restructured. Instead of locking each components with interlinks I have made a full tear drops shape of frame, and decorate it with a coiled wires, and S likes the moonstone, so I am keeping it. This is how it look like on my ear!
It is overall half an inch smaller as compared to the first version. I am very reluctant to put them together and compare, they are not exactly the same and the details of it aren’t the same anymore too, putting them together to compare is simply not being fair to the both of them, but just for you to get the feel of it, here’s when I put them together.
The smaller version requires alot more attention as compared to version 1, not only because of it’s overall smaller size that made it more challenging in terms of putting all components together, it is also very challenging for my eyes. I think I seriously in need of a table magnifying glass, perhaps this Daylight Ultimate Table Top Magnifying Lamp Antique Brass for Low Vision can be a very good gift to myself for my upcoming birthday. But then again Oh my god I am talking about magnifying glasses. Sigh age is catching up!
We will make a decision soon and hopefully get this finalized by end of tomorrow, this design needs to be done before 1st October 2010.
By the way, happy Mid-Autumn Festival to you all, hope you have a wonderful family reunion!
