Yellow paper bead, copper woven wire, wishbone shaped earrings


The overall look of these earrings reminds me of a wishbone but unlike when you are taking a chance with that turkey wishbone, these will only bring you good luck and lots of compliments.

Wire which has been upcycled from the inner workings of a motor was woven through the top of the earrings. A paper bead is suspended from the wire wrapped framework.

I made the yellow paper beads from paper I stamped with various inks, so other colors can be seen on the beads. Then they were coated with an acrylic, making them water resistant.

Custom formed sterling silver ear wires complete the earrings for a great look. And they come with ear nuts in case you like to use them.

The total length of the earrings is about 3 inches, including the ear wires and they are just under an inch wide.
