Hammered Imperfect Circles with Swiss Blue Topaz Flowers
I sawed out some imperfect circles and went at them with the hammer. They are happily asymmetrical and gently domed. I then added some flowers of swiss blue topaz woven with 14k gold wire. The silver is oxidized to a gunmetal gray and given a brushed finish by hand. These earrings measure 1 3/4 inches across and dangle just over 2 1/4 inches from 18k gold earwires.
