beaten silver, amber and turquoise earrings

I'm really proud of these.

I finished my basic silver-smithing course and am already thinking about designs and new ideas. I'm thinking of ways to combine the bead and wire work I do with hammered and soldered pieces.

OK, so these are pretty labour intensive but heck, they're worth it!

Turquoise from Chatuchak market, Bangkok, antique faceted baltic amber from Bermondsey antique (thieves) market, London.

Gemstone properties:
For happiness, friendship and positive energy.
To promote self-confidence.
