After looking at all the inspiration over and over, I finally settled on these earrings from Gemma Redux. The originals are gorgeous earrings. I just don't have $343 just lying around.
First thing I noticed was that they're metal. I really want to learn how to work with metal and thought it was a good challenge. Of course I used an aluminum sheet instead, but it didn't quite work out as well as I thought it would so I opted for aluminum wire. Originally, I also wanted to use something that I could replicate in resin but, as much as I tried, time wasn't on my side again. Still, I'm not upset at the outcome.
After a few times of practicing, I was able to get something I liked. I ended up only making one, but I think I may complete the pair later on. Maybe even make a matching necklace.
