Wire Wrapping Patina 'd Eye Charm Triangle Earrings ( Upcycling )
Although these aren't going to be a mainstream approval for earrings they turned out right at my taste level - These were made from wire found in a military surplus store and a broken eye charm bracelet from my stash ... thought they sorta turned out cool -- not sure if they remind me of Egyptian All Seeing Eye stuff or just the eyeball on top of the pyramid on the back of the dollar bill :D but thought I'd share for fun. All components (the earring hook, wire wrapped triangle, and jump rings are all handmade ( the turquoise stone beads were from a bead strand purchased from JoAnns ). The patina (blue and green) is Vintaj Patina by Ranger Ink (the same one that makes Tim Holtz Adirondack inks).
