Groovy Circle Earrings

I've been craving bigger earrings. Watching shows like Daisy Jones and the Six when it first came out and Minx, I just love the Mod designs of the late 60's and early 70's. The shapes are so big, bold, fun and flirty! The styles are inspiring but I'm not a fan of the plastic materials or bright colors. So I took to my sketchbook to redesign, to get the vibe and then bring in my own style, ancient looking, hammered, muted earth tones. 

It's funny because I've kind of always been inspired by ancient designs, to modernize them and bring them forward. This time it was taking more contemporary designs and putting an ancient spin on them. 

These earrings feature a pair of my tiny, oxidized Brass Floral Medallions attached above a pair of hammered, oxidized brass offset circles. My brother wants to call these "Florbitals" so badly...

Large Brass Circles 
are 1 3/4 outer diameter, 1 1/8" diameter inner holes
Tiny Brass Floral Medallions are 1/2" diameter.
These hang 2 3/4" from Sterling Silver earwires to the bottoms
