Today I'm playing along with the We're All Ears challenge for July on the Earrings Everyday blog. The inspiration this month is hot air balloons. We regularly see balloons overhead here, and they are always fun to watch.
I've had these hollow copper filigree balls in my stash for awhile. I thought the style and size were perfect for this challenge. They are not bright and colorful, but the intricate pattern reminds me of the original hot air balloons.

I was thinking of adding rigging to the balloons, but that didn't fly! So, to the filigree ball, I added a filigree bead cap and some spacers all in antiqued copper and strung them on copper head pins.
