Earring Tales: Golden Ornaments

Tried using two shades of gold in the diamonds. Contrast didn’t come out nearly as well as I’d expected. Hmm.

It’s supposed to be a very pale gold/vermeil (silver-lined ginger ale) inside silver-lined gold outlines. Looked like a nice but subtle contrast when I was putting it together, but looks like it was too subtle for photography. Darn.

The gold vs. ivory silk white beads do look good, though.

On a slightly unrelated note I’ve been having a few instances where eBay tried to post two entries of one item, and I’ve had to manually go through and delete the second. Might just be my mouse being twitchy, not sure.

  1. These earrings make me think of Gilgamesh, which makes me wonder if you’ll ever consider playing around in fate-verse. If not I would like to hear your opinion on fate-verse, favorite aspects, characters, and things you would change if ever did write a story about them. Thank you either way.

  2. It’s very subtle. You have to look close . . . and depending on how your brain perceives color, it might well be invisible.

    The inside ones are a little more honey and the outside look more metallic but as stated, you have to look close. First glance and even second glance said same color . . . it took telling my brain that they were supposed to be two different colors for it to start coming out.

    But subtle contrast can be good. sometimes you need the contrast to be softer or less noticeable. Sharp contrast has it’s good points but sometimes that’s not what the project needs. 🙂

  3. Reminds me of a cult classic animated film my family loves. Talked about ‘the golden city of Baghdad.’ Kinda puts me in mind of that.

    The Thief and the Cobbler, if anyone’s interested. It’s a funny movie. And pretty decent all things considered, when it was old before I was born.
