IMG_3441Planets orbiting a long defuct sun

That’s what these remind me of.  Prince Charming came up with planets, though I think they are not of this solar system.  Perhaps someplace far away, where civilization has come and gone for millenia, and all that remains is the detritus of past inhabitants.

Not that there is anything detrital (is that a word?) about these!  Bright red wirework with hematite and grey picasso pressed glass.  They spiral and loop with great abandon.  There’s even a hint of past fiery glory from the red crystals.

I admit to being quite pleased with this set.  My first attempt at making ear wires.  Bending, curving then hardening and finishing the wire.  No sharp edges and they will hold their shape.  The beads and triangles are all joined with wrapped loops.
