Two satellites

These I call two satellites, as that's what they look like to me. These are hand formed sterling silver ear wires with a hammered finish and patina, accented with swarovski crystals. The crystals have a mirror finish on one side, and clear on the other. I heated and quenched the silver 3 times in order to harden it. I know that over time, working with the silver will harden it, but for first time use I wanted to give it some extra strength.
