Nice Ampersand

August 7th, 2013 at 07:21 am

A step along the way working toward getting it just right. The objectives: easy to make two that match, have appeal to a wide market, not too time consuming (eg can be done in one or two sittings), raw materials not expensive. These fit the objectives, except for a bit off on the first goal (I see the imperfections probably more than you do).

Ampersand Earrings


Lots of detail in the wire weave make these earrings small beauties. Made with silver colored copper core wire with an added drop of serpentine and crystal. Ball posts.

I didn't intend to make an ampersand shape, that is just what they looked like when finished.

Lousy exposure, this is from my phone camera with a little adjusting on the PC.

Price range ~ $30 - $40

    You know, I bet you could make a treble clef with about the same amount of effort. It would appeal to music lovers, I'll bet.

    Yes, I thought of doing various symbols, but it's harder to control the wire than you think! It's easier to sort of bend it without a master design. Thx!
