Look what happens when my Love gets bored ... He came into the studio and said he wanted to make some earrings. I just about shit.
First collaborative effort between the two of us, EVER. Well, besides like the house, landscaping and stuff like that. Joe has some serious skillz when it comes to stained glass. He's done some pretty amazing things, windows, lamps, decorative panels, sun catchers... you name it. Since moving into our current home, he hasn't played around with this glass at all. He cut the glass in these earrings, and I created the wire bezels, and Joe did all the soldering. Then we patinaed each one giving it a darkened silvery look. I wire wrapped some faceted green amethyst, and some glass rounds and dangled them below each of the glass pieces. The earring wires are handmade from E2Ssupplies.
I think I may have created a monster! There are 2 more pairs of stained glass earrings in the works now as I type this.
I like how these turned out, unfortunately, the glass got switched when he did the soldering, and one has a shiny side up and the other has a textured side up. Ahh well, they're still cool.
