These handcrafted copper earrings are ones that you can wear with a favorite pair of jeans or out on the town. They are rustic and earthy and very fashionable. I created these handcrafted copper earrings from a sheet of copper. First I sanded and polished the metal before running it through a rolling mill to give it a special embossed pattern. Next I cut the rectangles, then sanded and filed them, before drilling holes in them. I then used a special heat process to give them a patina. As you can see it brought out various colors and shades of copper. The metal has been sprayed with a matte acrylic spray which will help the copper retain it’s special colors. I then wire wrapped them onto ear wires with copper wire along with a 3mm English cut seed bead with a metallic bronze finish.
The ear wires are made from niobium, a hypoallergenic material. Many people with metal allergies find this metal easy to wear. The wires also feature a pretty little copper ball on the front.
These handcrafted copper earings measure approx. 2-1/2′” in length from the top of the ear wires. These earrings are light weight and easy to wear. I have included a quarter in one of the photos for size comparison.
The earrings will be sent on a Solana Kai Designs card, wrapped in colorful tissue and placed in a complimentary decorative organza drawstring bag. It will be ready for you to open and enjoy or to give as a gift!
