I was commissioned to make a full set of silver roses based upon a junk-jewellery rose earring the client bought, loved, and lost part of on holiday. My instructions were to stick to the basic shape of the earring, but add my own flair, add a texture to the silver and make them much much bigger!
This is the original earring:

… and this is how it turned out all polished up and pretty:
Hopefully, when she’s feeling better I’ll got some cute modelled shots too :)
What do you think?
This commission was a bit of a challenge for me. I’ve never make a structured piece with so many layers before, and I’m pretty proud of how they turned out… I might have to add this sculptural layering way of making into my current project somewhere!
