I made these in a whuuuush of springtime air. A blast of seasonal shift that felt very much like home. Inner worlds bound tight from winter coldness, brought to surface, sang to fruition, and then to bloom. Just in time for summer!
Coins measure 1 3/4" wide.
For their visual 'heft', these post earrings are made for dancin'!
I'm always very sensitive to how heavy jewelry is,
wearing it, and building it.
I've done this design with construction for longevity,
but also have used thin 24gauge sterling for lightness,
and post earrings to distribute weight best,
including the disc-style bullet clutch backs for weight distribution as well.
These big ol' babies are not light in comparison with my other smaller earring designs, but they are also not uncomfortable! I mean, they ARE big!
(I feel their post-style and their light material does these babies proud! And there's nothing worse than having to ditch a beautiful pair of earrings because they're too heavy! I consider myself to have sensitive ears, and I was able to rock these babies all day without complaint.)
