Artisan Porcelain Drops and Mixed Metal Earrings

in: Earrings



I love these beautiful porcelain drops, expertly cut, textured, and glazed in a lovely denim blue, by Terra Rustica Studio. The tear drop shape is one of my favorites! I wanted to highlight this tear drop with a contrasting shape. So, I made these diamond shaped connectors from sterling silver. I hand stamped a design on a tiny piece of copper, cut it into an organic diamond shape, and soldered it to the center.

The sterling silver and copper have been antiqued/oxidized, buffed by hand, and tumbled for hours to achieve incredible strength, shine, and a lovely rustic patina.

These earrings measure 3" in length, from the top of the hand forged, Argentium Sterling Silver ear wire to the bottom of the earring.  Don't let the length fool you - these are incredibly lightweight and comfortable enough to wear all day --- or night ---long!

Jewelry is made using traditional metalworking techniques, including soldering, filing, sanding, texturing, polishing, and tumbling in my home studio. Jewelry comes wrapped in a cotton-lined gift box and ships quickly. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.  


NOTE: 100% of the proceeds from the sale of these earrings will be donated to Miracle Horse Rescue, a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for helping me help those who cannot help themselves!
