I made these uber sexy shoulder-duster earrings to be a very modern take on the Art Deco aesthetic.
They are made primarily of shining sterling silver, with accents of matte black onyx, from the tip to the very last slinky chain link.
These duster earrings are really time intensive to make, but I love the way they move.
Simple lever-back ear wires are extremely comfortable for sensitive ears, and they are very secure.
They are stamped with "P 925" which indicates that the ear wires themselves are silver-plate.
Each earring features a tassel of delicate sterling silver chains.
The tassel moves beautifully and has a wonderful tactile sensuality.
At approximately 5 1/2" long, it definitely earns its "shoulder duster" title.
These are attached to a wire-wrapped segment with three sterling silver spacers and two satin finish (sort of a matte texture) black onyx wheel-shaped beads.
If you're looking for drama, these are your earrings. I loved making them and I hope you will love wearing them.
They are stylish, to be sure!
