Earring Remake

by Lynda.
(Spring Valley, CA)

I periodically go through my jewelry inventory to check connections, give a shine up, and pick out pieces that have not sold to consider for a remodel.

This pair of copper earrings, despite a fun and flirty look, have been around too long. No takers.

So I ditched the silk ribbon tassel, hammered a texture on the copper washers, doubled up the long chain dangle, and added a bit of color and charm with the turquoise heishi beads.

Much better! We’ll see if anyone else thinks so at the next holiday market.

  1. Lynda, I remember when you first shared those lovely sari silk earrings here on JMJ! I’m surprised there were no takers for them. I also like your new remake of them, with the extra texture and edgier feel. Thanks for sharing this remake project, and please keep us posted on the fate of these earrings! 🙂

  2. Hi, Rena! These were first shared almost 4 years ago I think…definitely time for a rethink and redo!

  3. Lovely upgrade!

    Lynda, these are both lovely. The second pair reflects growing as a jewelry maker. Love the hammering.
