Love to watch the flame heat up the silver, glowing pink.  And then, the moment the magic happens, when the solder shines and flows into the join.  Here are two more pairs of earrings.

When making the large organic shaped pair, the first joint went perfectly text book.  Then the second one came apart when I forged it on the bench block.  Tried to redo it and just was not happy.  So I cut the wire in half and viola!  made the second smaller pair of hoops.  Which I’m wearing right now.  I then cut another piece of wire and finished up the first pair with no trouble.  Added some light peach fresh water pearls and handmade sterling ear wires.

                                    The larger hoops are slightly over 2 inches in length.
