AN OPEN BOOK – Street chic and industrial mixed metal earrings of fine silver and copper

These earrings are made of two metals that look beautiful together, I think. I like working with fine silver but sort of letting it masquerade as industrial and street chic by hammering and texturing it, as well as adding a patina.

These earrings were made by combining solid copper which I hand-forged and textured with the fine silver circles which have been treated as I described above. Fine silver is 99.9% pure silver, which is the best you can get.

The hand-forged French earwires are also of fine silver. They have been slightly hammered at the front.

The earrings are 1 ¾ inches long by 1 inch wide.

To complete the earrings, I applied a finish wax that is used in important museums all over the world to protect their most valuable pieces. This should protect the copper from tarnishing, as long as you do not rub the finish off or wash it off with soap and water.

Your earrings will be carefully and safely packaged and mailed to you in a lovely gift box, complete with gold ribbon.

Thank you for stopping by my shop and viewing these earrings. Please stop by often. I am adding new pieces every week.
