Mixed Metal Nomad 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. 

I rolled out PMC and cut these circles, and then I just started dotting this pattern. It was so much fun and freeing to not have a plan and just go for it and still have it come out symmetrical! I love creating my own texture on the spot with dots! 

These earrings are an iteration of my "Nomad" earrings, but instead of using a stone between to the sterling silver pieces, I've added a small, oxidized and hammered brass coller.

Large Sterling Silver Circles 
are 1 1/16" diameter.
Tiny Hammered Brass Collars are 1 1/8" wide x 1/4" tall
Silver Textured Spears are 3/16" wide x 7/8" tall.
These hang 2 3/4" from Sterling Silver earwires to the bottoms
