I made this pair of earrings by fold forming the silver, then soldering hammered silver wire to the front of each one to give even more texture to the earring. I liked the overall effect better before I used the dapping block, because once I did that, some of the fold forming lines almost seemed to fall out of the silver. Maybe I didn't have well-defined folded lines? At any rate, I do like them, they just aren't what I thought they would be.
The second pair I made were fairly quick: Swarovski crystals and sterling silver.
