The love affair with looooooong continues...

Athena Earrings - Porcelain & Sterling

So, I had a dream a little while ago about making these earrings. I love it when that happens. It reduces my need to think too hard.
I've played around with this sort of crescent shape on and off over the years but I have never combined it with such fabulously long ear wires before.

Athena Earrings - Porcelain & Sterling

They measure about 3 1/2" in length. That's long! I used sterling silver wire and then oxidized it to a lovely darker tone. This indigo pair can be found in my Etsy shop here.

This black and white pair can be found here.



And this goofy, grainy shot gives you an idea of just how fabulously long they are! :)

I love fabulously long! They look lovely on you. I have been over drooling on your new connectors. I think those would make fabulously long earrigs as well! So very pretty. Thank you for sharing your gifts with us!
Enjoy the day.

Fabulous, Nancy! You know I love big, long earrings. I think earrings are probably my favorite jewelry item to wear. There's nothing more fun than a big pair of swingy earrings!
