Oregon’s Dede Leupold added these dramatic Gypsy earrings to her Etsy site recently. She embeds the silver wires into the polymer, fires the clay and suspends the amethyst clusters and topaz drops later.
Dede has a delicate touch in both caning and wireworking and finishes the backs with equal care.
The blues of Dede’s color palette are distinctive. Check out her Ode to Spode button photos on her Facebook page for more examples.
