Project 2 from Deryn’s challenge

With this Project I wanted the folding to be precise. Since it was earrings I was making, there are two of them. I didn’t want them to be lopsided when I wear them. The drawing a bead is fun. Though I found out that if you are trying for a larger bead be careful as the heated piece may just fall off, then you’d be back to square one. Only with a shorter piece of wire. It takes some practice.
So this is what I came up with for the Peek a Boo Wrapped Earrings. Working with what I had on hand, copper pieces, I put these together.

For some reason I like the look of Green with Copper. So I put these beads dangling inside. There is a little twist in the bead that gives it a little something.
On to the next project.
