Custom Piece from Grandmas Earrings
My friend gave me a pair of earrings from her grandma with screw backs. She liked the setting, but never wore screwbacks. Maybe I could fashion something else for her?
I knew she liked pendants, so I created something a little Navajo inspired with an hammered crescent. I cut off the earring backs and used the original settings. Sautering the bezels on was a little tough as they were some sort of base metal, so I didnt want to loose the silver coating. I did it, though!
