Circular dangle earrings with textured silver on top of a copper base. They hang from sterling silver ear wires. Equally rustic and elegant.
These earrings are made from 20 gauge copper that I cut, filed and hammered. I then heated and fused silver onto the copper. As the silver melts it moves in unique and interesting patterns. Before and after fusing the silver, I hammered the earrings giving them added texture.
Tumbled for strength and shine. Each one is very slightly different in size and textured design.
They are light, not heavy.
The earrings are 1" in diameter. They hang about 1 5/8" from the top of the ear wire.
