Pretty things

Today I got out 95% of my Valentine's Day orders, so tonight I played around with some new materials and techniques.

First of all, I learned that I can make two bits of metal stick together! How cool is that? Here is a little sterling heart on a gold filled disc. Yes, I still need lots of practice!

Then, I tried fusing. Talk about cool, I felt like a real metalsmither type.

Lastly, I attempted to make some earrings for Olivia that match the bracelet I just gave her. For this one, I need some opinions. One earring is shown with the peridot cz alone, and the other with some freshwater pearls. What do you think? Keep the pearls or lose them?
