Textured Mixed Metal Oval Earrings

in: Earrings



Textured Mixed Metal Oval Earrings I absolutely love mixing copper with silver! This pair of earrings features solid copper -textured by running the copper sheet through my rolling mill - then sawed by hand into a slim oval shape. After filing, I gave these ovals a little anticlastic form to further enhance this design.  I then soldered a single sterling silver granulated bead (ball) to the bottom of each oval. The ear wires were formed with Argentium sterling silver - topped with a little copper bead to mimic the mixed metals below. 

The metals were darkened, polished by hand, and took a turn in my tumbler to achieve a beautiful, rustic patina. The earrings measure 1 3/4" in length and are incredibly lightweight and comfortable to wear from sun up, to sun down.

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

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.
