Year of Jewelry Weeks 13 and 14

Week 13 was Complimentary colors. I chose yellow and purple Czech fire polish beads for my colors. The earring design is from my Victorian Style Earrings Tutorial. I've gotten a ton of compliments on the use of these colors.

Week 14 was Gods and Goddesses-Thor. I created a Thor's Hammer using 16ga half hard half round wire for the base. Bending the piece of wire in the center over my needle nose pliers created the bail. 21ga half hard half round wire wraps the handle and at the top the two sides of wire were spread apart and shaped to fit the little agate stone. The 21ga wire then wraps around the stone several times to secure.
