I've been trying my hand at making hoop earrings, lately. And these earrings suddenly emerged. (Yes, they really do that. New designs have a way of making themselves. It's almost like I have nothing to do with it.)
I don't know why, but they somehow remind me of the paintings of Mondrian. I know he mostly worked with squares and right angles. But if he had painted circles instead of squares, I could image this design element in his work.
I really like the way the spaces around the smaller circles and larger circles are balanced. And the way that small hoop on the bottom hangs down. I think I need to do a bracelet in this pattern - but with heavier silver.
