Mixed Metal Sterling Silver and Copper Drop Earrings



Mixed Metal Sterling Silver and Copper Drop Earrings-  These earrings began with solid copper that I textured by hand, and cut into a washer shape. I wanted mixed metals, so I textured some sterling silver, and cut that into rounds.  The two shapes are held together with a technique called "pinning", which allows for the copper washer to move when you do. The metals were darkened, then polished back to reveal the highlights. 

These 100% hand crafted earrings measure 1 5/8"  in length from the top of the sterling silver ear wire to the bottom of the copper washer.  Lightweight, easy to wear all day long!

Metals used in this design are .925 sterling silver and solid copper.

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.
