From That to This

Etched sterling silver earrings. I have finally ordered some supplies to make it easier for me to do my etching on sterling. In the past I hand drew each design before soaking it in the acid. I still hand draw my patterns, but now it won't take nearly so long! These are 2-1/4" long including the handmade ear wire that closes, so it makes it more difficult to lose an earring.

Such fun to try new things!!
