These earrings are titled "Hardware Glam" because the donut shapes are actually stainless steel washers I bought at the hardware store! One earring measures 2 7/8" from the top of the earwire and 2 1/4" in width at the bottom of the earring.
The techniques I used were weaving each washer into my pattern and creating my own jumprings by wrapping aluminum wire around a file handle and using my jeweler's saw to cut them into perfect jumprings.
The materials used were stainless steel washers, aluminum wire and sterling silver earwires.
Big earrings are back!
