Nice Idea and I like what go out o it ^^ is this actual barbed wire?
I especially like the round ones Smile

But I would think that this fits more in the wire-art section of the forum Razz

Sorry about the wrong section. Of course this is more like wire arts than maille. The barbed wire I made my self. I tried couple of wire sizes and best looking came out of 1,2mm (16ga) and 0,9mm (19ga) wires. The circle barbed wire earrings are made of 0,9mm wire. After polishing it looks more beautiful than in the picture.

=) First pair of earrings in the testing were not filed and I got some feedback about the jewelry stinging when wearing scarf. Now I have rounded the sharpest edge off and they are fine, and same time look like real barbs.

My woman got some WOW looks when wearing the earrings in elementary school. (She is a teacher there)

I like the circular ones the most as well... to me they are the ones which are most identifiable as barbed wire, and the most finished looking as an overall design.
