College Earrings

A friend recently asked me to make earrings for her college friends for an upcoming mini reunion.  As it happens, I went to the same college and graduated 4 years before them so there was no overlap. However, I knew the college colors well: affectionately known as mud and blood (brown and maroon).  Here are the earrings I created for the women.

Typewriter Keys

A good friend of mine gave me some vintage typewriter keys in the fall.  It has taken a while for me to find the time to play with them and have them whisper designs to me.  I put them on my bench and with a bunch of other materials for lots of visual stimuli.  I cut some copper pieces out and made prongs to capture the keys,  Yes, there is a spring in the picture along with brass pieces and steel jump rings

I added some brass square tubing, antiques brass chain, vintage tin from a baking pan, Monopoly pieces and a stone with a natural hole through it and these are the results:

Sculptural Earrings

I was trying to think of a way to make my earrings more 3D and this idea came to me in the shower (don't you get great ideas with that hot water running?).  What do you think?
