Oval 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 then fused silver onto the copper. As the silver melts it moves in unique patterns. Before and after fusing the silver, I hand-stamped the earrings giving them a texture.
Each one is very slightly different in size and textured design.
They are light, not heavy.
The ovals are 1" long and about 1/2" wide. They hang about 1 5/8" from the top of the ear wire.
