Works in Progress Week Five: Stamped Solder Flower Tear Drop Earrings

Made it to week five of my personal challenge! I had do many stamped solder pieces that I had started and then never completed so I decided that I had to do something with them.  Here is an example of some of the pieces.

The two that I chose I did not photograph but you can see some others.  I decide to just polish and sand these for the earrings.  I free hand cut copper sheet into tear drop shapes and then added the molten solder and stamped them. I love the craftsman style thistle design. i left some of the copper showing for a more rustic appearance.  Just added silver plated ear wires and finished!
