Hey there, I’m glad you stopped by after something piqued your interest!

These post earrings are handcrafted, in the truest sense of the word. This pair’s most primitive form is a piece of sheet metal, the beginning of these chevron studs. After measuring and drawing, the next step is the cutting, bit-by-bit.

Next, its hammer time for texturing and shaping. Then filing, sanding, polishing and tempering with a torch to create the patina. There is something about aged copper... the tones, coloration and uniqueness of every shade that creates a beautiful harmony. One of the final steps is soldering the pieces to copper-plated, stainless steel earring posts; these work well for individuals like me with sensitive ears! Last but not least, I coat it with a clear, gloss, acrylic sealer to slow the aging process.
