Happy artists joy!

As artists, often we have *happy accidents* when making something and these sweet copper and Czech glass beads are one of them! Originally, I started out making a simple pair of wire earrings but they did not turn out as they were intended. So, instead of giving up on the original results, I decided to embellish them with my hammer (and maybe take out my frustrations a bit too!) I like the organic look that the copper took on with just a few taps of my chasing hammer! Hence, another *happy accident*!

The Organic Olives earrings are made with natural copper wire, not a coated craft wire. Because there is not a sealer on the metal, their patina will change over time to an even darker, antiqued finish. They are 2 1/4 of an inch in length; the dangles are 1-1/2 inches long, swinging from handmade copper earwires. The olivine Czech glass bead are faceted, and coordinate oh so well with the copper wire!

Thank you for looking!
