Vintage Camera Inspired Earrings

My earring design I was discussing yesterday was a success! At least I think so. They are based on something I own and love. Vintage cameras.

I actually own a couple of vintage cameras like a Brownie hawkeye, a Spartaflex, and a not quite so vintage 3d camera. I have always loved old cameras. It's not even about the remarkable pictures they take but about their shape as well. There is just something about them.

So, without further adieu, I'd like to introduce my vintage camera inspired earrings!

I think they are just adorable and am contemplating making myself a pair I love them that much. The camera is made from copper sheet, the lense and viewfinder from sterling silver tubing, and the flash from copper sheet formed into a disc. They are stud/post earrings, and the post is sterling silver.

They will be available in my shop later today as I still have a little work to do on them(which you can see in the pic). Let me have some feedback on them as this is a very new design and concept for me.

Until next time, my duckies!
