These textured copper earrings have a Boho yet earthy style to them. With the soft colors they might possibly become one of your “go to” pairs of earrings! I handcrafted the copper dangles from a sheet of copper. The metal first was prepared by sanding and polishing it to remove any blemishes before running it through a rolling mill to give it a special embossed pattern. Next came the shaping, filing, sanding and drilling. After that I gave the pieces a patina using liver of sulfur. This makes the embossed areas stand out darker and also gives the copper a deeper, browner color. The metal has been sprayed with an acrylic spray which will help top preserve it’s color.
I attached the dangle pieces to the ear wires with a copper pin on which I placed a rondelle shaped 9x6mm Czech glass opaque bead in turquoise green with a Picasso finish. Rondelle refers to a bead shape in which the ends have been flattened. The rondelle rests on a bronze Czech glass druk bead and above it sits a pretty amber seed bead with a turquoise lining.
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 delicate little copper ball on the front.
These handcrafted textured copper earrings measure approx. 2-1/2′” in length from the top of the ear wires. 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!
