Some new earrings

I made these earrings  for my best friend whose oldest daughter I wrote about over a year ago (click HERE to read the blog post). 
These are post-backed puzzle piece earrings to go with the pin I designed called Trying to Fit In.  I used the dangling puzzle piece in the pin design as the template for these earrings - yet as a stand alone jewelry piece they remind one a little bit of the blue colored symbol for "Autism Speaks" as Asperger's is part of the Autism spectrum.
This is made from PMC silver and the posts are sterling silver that I did depletion gilding on.
