Silver and copper spiral Celtic Cross Earrings

I was asked to make some Celtic Cross Earrings, and this is what I did.  The cross is silver with triple spirals, triskele, on the arms and a larger central spiral in the middle.  The spirals have been coloured to give an extra dimension to the piece, and a copper ring placed behind to represent the eternal circle.  I hand forged the earwires as well from silver.

(Hey look the blogger photo thing works, we can put photos other places than just at the top :0), you may already know this but it's new to me)

Anyway relived to find that the lady who asked for them likes them and thinks that the person who they are for will really like them.

Trick and treat

Ment to post this a little while ago.

The maggot heaving decomposing body of Dead Fred and his ghost hovering by it, or that's what I told the kids when they went out searching for the skeletor parts of Billy Bones that had been hidden in the garden to bring back in exchange for a reward of Halloween chocolate (the body and ghost looked better in the dark), oh I also had my oldest son dressed up and hidden ready to jump out at the kids when they got close hehehe...
