Earrings for Me

August 17, 2010

I made these for myself – they are very plain and rather dull, but I like them for everyday wear with neutral colors.  I carved the stone beads from a pebble that I found in the Empire Mountains, and wrapped them with black steel wire and antique African iron bicone beads.  The stone is an irregularly laminated carbonaceous dolomite.  The beads have a soft polish and the brown stripes are a bit more obvious in person.

The pod knife is sold and I’m working on a tiny one that has a silver pod.
