This cameo is a tortoise shell vintage cameo surounded by a rose gold colored copper wire crocheted into a sort of basket. I then wove colored freshwater pearls around it in two layers. I have plans to do a Viking crocheted copper chain to accompany it.
In stark contrast to the above piece, here are is a simple pair of earrings. I used swarovski bicones, freshwater pearls and faceted glass beads along with the silver plated wire and findings to create these lovely drop earrings.
