new earrings

these are the new earrings that i 'debuted' at the Walker sale. -- they come in 2 sizes... black, red, orange, yellow & ivory...

and in a variety of woods including a new species: purpleheart that i am trying for the first time (upper left)

always concerned with the delicacy of cut-material and brittle-ness of certain woods - i've also tried layering 2 woods.

layering the materials makes the earrings thicker and a little more substantial. but the best part is that they are 'reversible' -- the smaller pair show here is walnut on one side and basswood on the other.

right now i am calling them the DRAPE earring (if you have any better ideas for their name, i'm open to suggestions!)
