I seem to have a bit of breathing space, so I am catching up. ZOMG TWO POSTS IN ONE DAY.
Have some ear cuff photos!
Love the simple shape. Need to redo this to fit right.
It all started so simply.
- And it fit!

A friend suggested wrapping some excess wire back up the shape, and creating layered leaves. Needs a little refining (I dislike the indentation along the edge), but I really like the layered look.
With bonus not-ear cuff wire work:
This was inspired by the wire mesh I made for the sink, as well as Elise Matheson's fabulous necklace-crowns.
