Fan earrings completed

These are punched copper earrings with a blue green patina and criss-crossing silver wires with reference to patterns from shwe-shwe fabric. The shepherd’s hooks are silver with a simplified copper element to ‘marry’ the copper and silver
These were made a while after the platinum shwe-shwe earrings. I made them in copper so I could apply a blue green patina for colour and give them a slightly more casual appeal to that of the platinum or silver earrings. I have abstained from using the spiral shepherds hooks and created better proportions in terms of the ratio of the wires to the fan element.
