    Those are gorgeous Great length and I bet they look wonderful worn.

    My only teeny, tiny criticism - I'd love to see them on handmade earwires though

    LOL Di!

    They are fab!! (oh poo I haven't got 3mm, I could try some delicate ones with 2mm though...)

    (But I agree with George about the ear wires)

    This design is one of my staples although I do it in both 2mm and 4mm. I also do not anneal the wire and just go for it.

    Just wish my pics were as good as yours

    They are beautiful - I'm a sucker for a bit of forging

    Hand forged from 3mm sterling wire with shed loads of annealing and a lot of hammering.

    Very slender at the tips, hammered down to 0.45mm, which was about the thinnest I felt I could go without being dangerously sharp.

    What do you think?

    Stunning
