Textured Mixed Metal Matchstick Earrings


Textured Mixed Metal Matchstick Earrings ​ I am always searching for ways to incorporate texture into my designs. These earrings began with a flat strip of solid copper to which I have roll printed a pretty pattern. Instead of simply punching a hole in the top, I added a hand cut sterling silver rivet. Two sterling silver granuals/balls were soldered to the copper to further complete this mixed metal design. These textured matchstick-style earrings hang from my hand forged sterling silver ear wires.  Lightweight earrings with a nice little dangle effect. 

After fabrication, the earrings were oxidized, buffed and polished by hand, and tumbled to achieve a beautiful shine and a lovely rustic patina. The earrings measure aproximately 2 3/8" in length. 

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!
