Sketch to Product

So, I always kind of though that the idea of artists coming up with ideas on bar napkins was a bit of a romantic myth, but I was out with some friends last night and got to talking to one friend in particular, who wanted a pair of my mica earrings. Several napkins later we came us with this design:

Then, after some frustration, despair and problem solving I made these earrings this afternoon. I'm pretty satisfied with them and pretty pleased with the solution I came up with after I realized that my original plan wouldn't work. My friend loved them and totally rocked them at the MFA opening/party tonight! She's already commissioned a second pair!
