I've been having fun lately with creating interesting earwires--I like the idea that the earwire should be just as decorative as the rest of the earring! In fact, I think the earwires are the most eye-catching part of this pair. The earwire has been hammered a bit into a flattened shape, so the wire wrap and gemstones don't move around. These have been tumbled for several hours and the design is quite sturdy. The faceted round stones are red/black agate.
