WIP Earrings to Go With Fish

I can't believe how "modernistic" (mid century atomic style) these turned out to be! So far, that is. The top layer, which was die pressed from a cigar tin, has kept its finish, and the hand colored pink used in the last abyssal anglerfish is the bottom layer.  I will fabricate settings for the Preciosa ab rhinestones.  They will be riveted together with copper ball head rivets and finished surgical steel posts.  The die pressing on these was quite successful -- I added more to the "sandwich" of z-foam, another die plate.  That evened up the pressure.  These were pressed at 3,000 lb.  I'm lovin' the results.
