A Design a Day – Day 235 (Seeing Double)

I’m having fun with this S-shaped earring theme.  Today’s variation combines elements of yesterday’s all-diamond, delicate coil top and the previous two day’s use of yellow gold metal:

Since most things look better in odd number groupings (3, 5, 7…), I’ll post a 5th and final variation tomorrow!

And now a few inspirational quotes to finish the day –

Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.

T.S. Eliot

Shoot for the moon.  Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.

    Joana,

    I’ll vote tomorrow :-), but I have a question: do the two S curves swing separately from one another?

    Congrats on the rotary tumbler!

    • Hi Nina,

      I designed the two S-curves thinking that they would be soldered together. However, your question is an interesting one and raises a design possibility I hadn’t considered…Yes! The earring would also work with the two “legs” swinging independently from one another; it might look really cool that way.

      Now I’m going to post the final variation…

      Looking forward to hearing which you like best!
      Joana
