Hearts On Fire - Doubles

Made these tiny earrings, just posted to Etsy. Love the earwires. Balled the ends, then flattened them. Different shape, like a paddle, for the dangle earrings. Made three sizes, small-medium-long.

Put a dark patina on them, some of the earring pendants made recently have a dark patina on the silver. Needed earwires to go with them.

Started to try the chain idea that's bouncing in the brain, but the wire didn't want to cooperate. The pieces are still in the pickle, need to see if anything can be used.

Trying new things means learning, but also sometimes means learning what doesn't work in real life the same way it worked in your imagination, I guess.
