In this series, I think I've created one of my most elegant looks. Here, I've put the strip of woven metal down the middle of the piece, then put textured 14/20 gold fill sheet metal on each side to create a subtle shimmer that really compliments the sparkle of the center woven strip.
To create the focal point of these earrings, I weave sheets of fabric from rose & yellow 14/20 gold fill wire or silver wire using a medieval fingerweaving technique. Then I cut this fabric into smaller pieces to embed behind the glass. The different shapes of glass both magnify the weave, giving it more definition, as well as collect the light, making the entire piece glisten.
The earwires are nickel free, and are the new no-slip variety. These earwires actually have little "speed-bumps" on the back to help prevent them from slipping back out of the ear. I have sensitive ears myself, and can wear these with no problem. They also come with rubber stoppers for those who want extra protection.
Dimensions (measured from the ball on the earwire): 1 3/4 inches long and 1/2 inch wide

Materials (all alloys are nickel free!):
Silver: Argentium Sterling Silver (the new tarnish resistant silver)
