I dug out these cast pistachio shell earrings for my shoot last week.  I forgot how much I like them, and was glad to have this nice image taken by Joe Baran (  These were cast, then soldered to custom earwire.  They hang about 2″ down from the ear.  The entire piece is sterling silver.  I love the texture on them, and really ought to polish them back up again.

these earrings are lovey, but I wondered why you didn’t go a step further and have a gem bead, pearl or charm dangling inside?

Sometimes I just like toe work with metal, I am a silversmith at heart, I suppose, and since I made these when I was still a student I may not have had the knowledge to do so at the time.
