The Genesis of FIG Earrings

In my attempt to learn how to fashion insects from glass. I employed the techniques used in my practice of making glass beads. Bringing about harmonious wings for said insects I birthed a multitude from which I could pick a proportionate set. With the prudent suggestion of a studentI ended up putting loops on the remaining attempts at the wings, and m best selling items earrings were born. Later I figured from the practice of making matched earrings that I could do surgery to each wing to effectively find the symmetry. I find it ironic that producing beads informed my sculpted models which divined my pendant wing styled earrings, who’s practice forewarned the efficacy of my sculpting.
