Sterling Silver Hoops with Copper Accents

in: Earrings



Sterling Silver Hoops with Copper Accents - I never tire of making them, or wearing them...or trying to come up with fresh designs! This particular pair is crafted from thick, solid sterling silver wire (1.6mm, or 10 gauge). Forged into a hoop shape, I added a coil of copper wire to achieve a mixed metal earring. The copper coils bring such a nice texture to these earrings. This particular ear wire (forged from sterling silver) is not only quite secure, but very comfortable to wear. 

I have darkened the metals, and polished it by hand to bring out the details in the copper - a lovely patina! Lightweight and comfortable, the earrings measure approximately 1 7/8" in length from the top of the hand forged, sterling silver wire to the bottom of the earring. 

All 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.


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!
