The sad thing about these is that one of the ear wires is not silver throughout. I got it from the scraps box (silly me) without realizing that it was silver-plated copper. When I went to sand it, the copper showed through.
Fortunately, that little blemish can be fixed as soon as I remember to take the damn thing in to the studio. I will just cut off the bad ear wire, make a new one, and solder it on!
Below you can see some of the beginning sketches for it.
