These playful earrings are based on a stylised fish shape with an extravagant fin and a flared tail, all created by hammering thick sterling silver wire into shape with my vintage ball peen hammer. The beads are mounted on this wire during the hammering process and further secured by coiling round silver wire above the beads. The making of these earrings was very low carbon indeed, as all of the processes are conducted "cold" except for forming the ends of the hand made ear fittings into balls. The beads inspired me to make these earrings, as they comprise a colourless glass coating over a clear aqua core, decorated with green weeds and pink rose flowers, and containing shimmering trapped air bubbles. They truly appear as watery and shiny as leaping fish. Perhaps they would be a suitable present for a Piscean, as side by side they are also swimming in opposite directions, like the astrological sign. They measure 20 mm long, including the fish hook ear fittings.
These earrings are stylishly presented in a black card gift box tied with a bow.
