inspired by my friend rubygirl's ( http://rubygirl.etsy.com ) innovative use of similar 'filigree' findings, these hoops incorporate brass pieces that have green patina rubbed away to reveal brass highlights
(they are not true filigree, which is the fine craft of manipulating thin strips of metal into intricate shapes)
i think of the faux filigree series as doodles for future pieces that will have handcut/etched/pierced/formed blades of my own design and making.
(but in the meantime, i really like these!)
