Rings & Earrings

I love flames.  I really enjoyed playing with my torch with annealing and adding patina.  Tons of fun.

Here's what I came up with today:

I riveted the hand forged shank after adding some nice patterns to the copper and an adorable handmade lampwork flower bead that I picked up at a bead show. 

After cutting out two equal strips of 24 gauge copper sheet, I annealed and added heat patina with patterns.  Then I added the gorgeous lampwork beads on the bottom with hand made silver ear wires.  They actually look a bit heavier than they are.  They are super comfortable to wear.  I love them so much!
