    They look like circles pinched in half at the centre to give two lobes then folded to bring these two lobes together.

    Yes about four of them, but as they are someone else's design, I would suggest you experiment with various shapes in copper, to come up with your own version. Dennis.

    I did something similar once and it was so problematic to solder together that I only did it once well twice as I managed to make 2 for earrings.

    I did like them though and would have liked to replicate them

    Thanks George. I was really fond of them but would have to find a better way of holding them together to solder!
