These signature half posey earrings begin with a heavy 16 gauge wire that is formed and hammered before soldering onto a loop and ball, and copper bezel. I set two 6mm pink Japanese Cat's Eyes and mounted to a french earwire. I kept the finish on these a soft bright silver. I am frustrated in the photo, as there is a beautiful *mica-shift* like sheen to a cat's eye that just cannot be captured with the camera. Think the sheen of a tiger eye stone, or a particularly beautiful mother-of-pearl.
