Today’s Challenge: I did not make these beautiful earrings, but I’m going to!

A friend recently left me a pair of earrings to do a minor repair on.  The longer they were in my possession, the more I grew attached to them.  Before I returned the earrings, I took a couple photos with the intention of making a similar pair for myself one day.  Today is the day. 

The original earrings appear to be fabricated in silver and turquoise. I’m wondering if I can make something similar out of PMC (precious metal clay) and enamel, so here I go…check back tomorrow to see how I did. 

ps:  I consider it a clear indication of my progression towards middle age that I’m interested in post earrings.
