Leaf headpins, left long and made into earrings.

I've heard it said that "bacon makes everything better," but for me pearls make everything better.

The headpin is 16g blackened steel wire that has been cleaned, hammered and polished and sealed with wax.
Wire 'vines' with pearls are 22g bronze colored wire.

I hammered the ends flat and then punched holes in them to attach the earwires.
Not sure about this - some other pairs are in the works were the joint to the earring is resolved differently.

February, when an old woman's fancy turns to green leaves and buds.
