My hubby made me do it. Yes he did. I was trying some new designs on some heavier dangle earrings and R.J. told me to make large disc earrings with a sun design. And the end result you see in these pictures. I love the combination of the metals i love, The disc i made from 20 gauge bronze and then i cut out the sun beams from 18 gauge copper and the little circle is sterling silver. I soldered copper and silver onto the bronze disc and after doing that the fused metal was dapped into a domed shape. I have to admit that dapping it was not easy so i used my new 3 pound hammer ( fell on my foot about 1 month ago after i first got it, ) the hole was drilled ear wire added and voila. Tribal looking big disc earrings :)
