Elaborate loops & whorls inspired by soutache jewelry in these copper wire wrap & faceted tiger eye earrings. Also known as "Russian Braid" or "Galloon", soutache is a hand crafted, decorative textile trim that dates back to 14th century France. Traditionally used in clothing decoration, soutache trim has, as of late, become popular combined with beads & cabochons in jewelry. These earrings are inspired by the layered, flowing feel of soutache trim work.
The earrings feature intricate oxidized copper wire wrapping, looped & layered around round & rondelle beads of smooth & faceted tiger eye and faceted black tourmaline. Ornate & unique, they would pair beautifully with this Tiger Eye & Copper Art Necklace, as shown in the last photo. And if you purchase them together, you can use the coupon code SET10 for a 10% discount at checkout.
The earrings measure just over 2" (5.08 cm) in total length, including their hand formed, 14kt gold filled ear wires.
