Burnished Copper Layered Style Earrings

Have you noticed how some jewelry artisans churn out the same type of dangle earrings over and over again? Here is one way to get out of the rut.

Layering earrings with different types of components not only adds depth but character and texture to the design. Cathy had to work a little on this creation. Initially, she had the copper leaves right in front of the green tags which practically obscured the latter. But with the addition of short pieces of chains, the leaves now dangled lower and didn't block the green tags much.

How's that for a refreshingly different design?

  2. What a great idea, I have not thought of layering....does this give me an excuse to go buy more beads I wonder.....

  3. Absolutely! Inspiring designs do give you licence to go get more beads and copper if your heart desires.

    This layer style really works and the green element stands out perfectly !

  5. Layering is a wonderful technique indeed, I use it very often when I'm making my pendants. I love to add danglie things too.
