Oval and round elements for earring designs

By on Wednesday, December 30, 2009 2 Comments

You can easily dress up plain earring dangles by incorporating oval or round findings. Kristie made some awesome earrings at a workshop because she really took advantage of these elements. Her first pair used laser cut filigree findings which remind me a little of the art nouveau style. The dangles were added as the front layer.

Her second pair is this lovely antiqued copper design where the oval was just a simple cut out. The choice of colored beads makes it look vintage too.



Last but not least is her creative use of drilled bone rings. Instead of filling the hole with a large bead, Kristie opted to just put the head pin through the first hole. The black findings were a sharp contrast to the earth tone colors of the beads. It always amazes me how much we can do to zap up earring designs. Thanks, Kristie for the inspirations!
