Torch Enamel Earrings - More Poppies!


I do seem to have a bit of a poppy thing going on at the moment. My poppy bangle sets are proving to be quite popular - I had several made to order sets and singles to make last week and I sold the silver poppy studs I made too! 


So to carry on the theme because I like the shape I made a couple of pairs of simple enamel poppy earrings too. They are pretty easy to make once the enamelling is done. The balled sterling wire is threaded through the hole in the centre of the poppy then bent at a right angle before being bent up over itself to form a loop at the back that stops the enamelled poppies from flopping forward when the earrings are worn. The wire is then curved into an ear hook and finished.


I made the poppies in minty green and mauve and another concave disc pair in bitter green...




I was thrilled to see my new order of decals arrive today. The designs look really sweet and a bit clearer than the last lot so I'm hoping to have another go with them tomorrow
