Creating a pair of earrings is different than other work of jewellery. Earrings have to be lightweight, secure yet not too difficult to wear and remove… [as some that i have made in the past probably are] They should flow with the shape of the ear and the head, be comfortable, and move gracefully if they include moving parts. and be a pair, two of the same… and in the past, this, in itself, was a small challenge.
