Installment #3 of the Cheeky Chimera Collection-
As implied by the title, these earrings are dripping with a glam rock glittering excess that still, somehow, stays both classy and elegant. How miraculous!
In fact, these earrings embody my notions of a Cheeky Chimera: a fantastical monster composed of vignettes from dreams and waking life...
Each earring is unambiguously different from it's mate, and still clearly belonging to it.
Hammered brass wire is intermixed with freshwater pearls, rhinestones, Swarovski crystals, and glass beads, and several accent details from recycled costume jewelry.
Chains dangle from each earring, adding graceful movement and accentuate a slender neckline.
Though loaded with panache, the earrings are amazingly lightweight!
