The hand fabricated ovals of these earthy elegant etched copper earrings feature double spiral designs, inspired by old Viking motifs…the bead stack that hangs from the bottom has graduated rondelles of turquoise, in a mix of colors, with little golden pebbles of natural Baltic amber.
The metal work process in this style of earring has several steps; the shapes are first sawn by hand from sheet copper, smoothed up & thoroughly cleaned. Then the designs are hand drawn on the clean surfaces. Next the metal pieces go into an acid bath for several hours, until a good etch is achieved. The pieces are thoroughly cleaned again, then oxidized & finally steel wool polished to a mellow gleam.
These earrings measure 2.25″ (5.71 cm) in total length, including their hand formed, oxidized sterling ear wires.
