For the adventurous warrioress who romps through tangled woods, makes potions from tree bark and can shoot an apple from a tree with her bow and arrow. Okay, maybe the modern version finds her in the grocery store, feeding a baby while answering emails and single handedly flinging tupperware across the kitchen into the sink. Either way, these earrings are hers.
Made from a light textured copper circle representing infinite wholeness. Copper wire is torched to create small balls at each end for a decorative touch. The heated and malleable copper wire and small copper balls are woven around and around the bottom half of the hoop, securing a Czech glass paddle bead in hues of petal pink and lavender. Small copper decorative beads add a little ‘pop’ here and there. All metal is given a patina, burnished back and then sealed with museum quality micro-crystalline wax. Sterling silver ear wires are darkened to compliment the design. Even though the metal is sealed with wax, over time it will continue to darken a bit. I love the look of aged metals as it gives depth and warmth to the piece. You may softly rub a polishing cloth over the surface to bring out the sheen of the metals and brighten them again.
Measures 2.25″ from top of ear wire to bottom of paddle bead.
