Hey there, I’m glad you stopped by after something piqued your interest!
These earrings are handcrafted, in the truest sense of the word. Starting with a piece of sheet copper, measuring and drawing is the next step in the process. Bit-by-bit comes the filing, sanding, polishing and tempering with a torch to create the patina with a perforated edge added for additional texture.
There is something about aged copper... the tones, coloration and uniqueness of every shade that creates a beautiful harmony. The fish hook hoops are copper-plated, stainless steel; these work well for individuals like me with sensitive ears! Last but not least, I coat the pieces with a clear, gloss, acrylic sealer to slow the aging process.
