Lately I've been on a real filigree kick. I'm not sure why. It's not like I can't make other things with my toolbox of skills. It's not like filigree is quick or easy. But I've been doing it. I've been doing a LOT of it. That and watching a lot of Star Trek.

Anyway, you didn't come here to read a blog post. Or maybe you did. Maybe you came for the filigree but you stay for the witty repartee. But in case you just want to know about these killer earrings, read on....

They are 44mm of pure awesomeness from top to bottom. I spiralized all that wire and soldered it in place in what I can only describe as a Zen-like trance. And you will feel peaceful when you wear them, because they are ridiculously lightweight and comfortable when you put them in your ears. And the earwire is super long - you're probably never going to lose one of them because it fell out of your ear when it snagged on your scarf or something. They just stay where they are. I'm not kidding when I say I have a similar pair and I sleep and shower with them. I can't recommend that because I don't know what your body chemistry or your shampoo is like, so maybe take them out to sleep and bathe.

I don't think you'll find a pair of earrings like these ones - I'm not one to toot my own horn, but these are a pretty unusual design that I'm quite proud of. They have a design that reminds me of an insect wing - maybe from another planet. Or a teeny tiny fairy creature but we all know that fairies are nasty. They are a blade design meant to hang parallel to the side of your face. Let's face it, I just like to say "blade earrings" because I'm picturing Wesley Snipes wearing one of these.

NOTE: I've sold a few pairs of these since I made the ones in the photograph. If you buy these earrings, you will have your own pair made-to-order and they will inevitably have small differences from the pair in the photo. They're going to be pretty close, though. You might not even notice, unless you put them up against the photo and tried to pick out differences like those cartoon pictures from when we were kids, where you had to circle the 5 things that were different between the two panels. Anyway, I just thought you should know.

Smaller than I'd pictured (about 1.5" long by 1" wide), these are still lovely and substantial with obvious attention to detail taken in removing sharp points and edges on both interior and exterior cuts. They hang beautifully and came with clear silicone retainers.

Love these earrings! I wore them to Ultracon and got a lot of complements on them. They look great with my Star Trek uniform!

A totally unique look, snd amazing quality/artistry. So pleased. They came packaged beautifully and ready for gifting. I contacted the artist about whether she could make a different pair in a slightly smaller size and she said “of course” ... apparently all of her designs am an be up- or down-sized. So accommodating. Thank you!
