Dramatic Copper and Kingman Turquoise Earrings

$51.00

Sometimes, I find that I buy a strand of gemstones and simply hoard them - usually where I can see them and admire Nature's Beauty every single day. That would be the case with these Kingman Mine Turquoise beads...they are gorgeous! Beautifully cut to enhance the perfect blue / green turquoise color, along with the organic veining, each bead measures approximately 9mm in length.

The turquoise beads have been paired with tiny solid copper accent beads - each wire wrapped to a length of copper chain. This chain is suspended from a hand wrapped copper hoop, creating a dramatic almost "waterfall" effect for these beautiful beads!

I have added a patina to the copper elements, polished and buffed by hand, and tumbled for hours for incredible strength, shine, and that rustic glow that I adore. Several coats of museum-quality jewelry wax (Renaissance Wax) has been buffed onto the copper to enhance the patina.

The hoops measure approximately 79 mm in length (3") and are suspended by my hand forged, solid copper ear wires.  These earrings are not heavy and very comfortable to wear all day and all 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.
