This one was fun . . .

A special request from another referred artist - a teeny earring for that piercing at the top of your ear (does that have a name?).

Sort of a personal challenge to see if I could make something that small that retained enough detail to be interesting. Amy requested something 'age appropriate' and I think that may fill the bill.

You can see by the size comparison with the little guy resting on a dime that it is pretty small - about 1/4" in fact and it hangs about 1/2" from top to bottom. The sidewalls and the center dot are higher than the well surrounding the center and I've oxidized it for a little visual interest. High polish contrast and a thicker earwire.
