Green Ring and wire earrings inspired by the book 101 Wire Earrings by Denise Peck

I get my inspiration for the projects I post here mostly from books but today I believe is the closest I've come to actually making a project just like the one in the book.

In 101 Wire Earrings: Step-by-Step Projects and Techniques
are these simple wire earrings with a ring dangling from them. They are just so simple and nice.

Off to the stash to see what rings I had. These Enchanted Planet oval rings in my favorite shade of green were just perfect.

These earrings are what I call "instant satisfaction" for sure.

Like a lot of the designs in 101 Wire Earrings: Step-by-Step Projects and Techniques they are not hard to create but sure make a statement.

I have already made another pair but didn't have time to photograph them for this post but promise to soon!

The book looks like a must-have. I like every design shown on the cover, as well as the pretty green ones you made.
