Pearl flowers

Simple pair of earrings with a flower shaped domed back and a half drilled peacock pearl stuck to a post in the middle. I’ve been meaning to finish these off for a year or more and finally got round to them. Also got to try out my homemade barrel polisher, gripping a hexagonal jam jar full of stainless¬†steel shot in the wood lathe, set to the slowest speed (100rpm probably still a bit too fast) seems to work, see vid below.¬†Just need to decide who gets them now.
