Moonflower Earrings

I'm trying out lots of new designs, just seeing what all I can do with the Argentium plus metal clay.  The latest have some soldering, since the small flower is placed on top of the large flower and leaves and doesn't really touch the Argentium enough to fuse securely. In retrospect, I should build the entire flower and leaf assembly in clay and fire it together, but in this case I used flower and leaf components. Chalk this time consuming pair up to experience.
