Carved, cast and made these pewter (lead free) “gem” earrings. They have a lovely faceted surface that catches the light and has a lot of depth and interesting texture. My first real effort at making my own beads. If you like them you can buy a pair here.
Been playing around with some new ideas. Making gems out of metal is one of them. These are the result. Carved from a single slab of bronze, then faceted with a file, buffed to a high shine with silver posts. I really like the way these came out, and they go well with other earrings if you have multiple piercings.
