A quick post-and-run here… I just had to share these paper-thin (OK, more like 0.05mm) lacy filigree teardrops with you – and what’s more, all of them are matte! While I don’t normally use base metal components, these were much too lovely to pass up. The satin-finish silver, gold and black are so modern but the intricate open teardrops hark back to a romantic era where one sat down for frou-frou tea and buttered crumpets on doilies. They’re also super lightweight so you get all the drama without any discomfort. Finished with my own handmade sterling silver and 14K goldfilled earwires. Check’em out in my Artfire studio now 🙂
