Agate slice earrings - work in progress

December 09, 2014

I made time to work on the Laguna agate slice earrings over the weekend and am pretty happy with the progress so far.  

work in progress - agate slice and silver earrings

fancy sterling silver wires  laguna agate slices

The ear posts still need some work and then I will be ready to use my new Fretz hammer to rivet the agate slices in place. Unfortunately, this pair of earrings will not be making their way into the shop.  This is my first time tackling this complex a project and I'm learning a lot from it in terms of constructing a piece from multiple elements. I'll use what I learn to tweak the construction of the next pair - which will definitely be for the shop.

In between orders, I've been working on Christmas gifts for family.  These ear posts (another work in progress shot) will make a fabulous base for a pair of dangle earrings for someone very dear to my heart - won't divulge the name here, no spoilers!  I can't wait to see her face when she opens her Christmas present!
