I finished these last night. I think the last photo depicts best how these look in person. Don't they look just like little sunflowers? I love them. And, also my favorite dangly length! (2 1/4" from the top of the ear wire). I oxidized them and gave them a brushed finish.
I do need to give credit to where credit is due though. The use of findings in metalsmithing is all over Etsy right now. I don't know for certain who was the first to use them, but I do know the first person I saw use them. It was an amazing artist known to the jewelry world as RosyRevolver. You must check out her shop and her work. Unbelievably amazing. She is my jewelry hero!
I'll be listing Sunflowers in the shop this evening!
