tutorial about it, and I ordered it from the link on her site. The earring fronts are antique ivory piano keys from a child's piece. The holes were from the tiniest little screws I've ever seen. I backed them with antique sheet music and dangled old, dark mother of pearl buttons. I will still always use sterling for ear wires, but listen up, this wire has potential, and it's CHEEP!
Ok so I have a crush on Deryn Mentock (her etsy shop)well, not in the Ellen kind of way, and not nearly as much as Johnny Depp, but she's my kinda gal. I love her blog, her style, her heart for teaching, and her talent. And the fact she's a Westerner. I'm glad she finally got some boots.
Check out the wire, it's a terrific alternative to sterling or fine silver, and for art projects requiring patina and strength, it's got it all.
ciao for now!
