Simple and beautiful, they are light enough to wear every day, but dramatic enough to be noticed! They are hand-hammered for shape, and then lightly polished. One side is left smooth, and the other (the flat-hammered side) is given a light satin finish. If you prefer, I can give the satin side a more hammered look instead of satin - just let me know in the notes to seller at checkout.
Both copper and red brass will oxidize; red brass starts off looking very much like 14k, but oxidizes to a lovely butterscotch color. Both may also react with the skin to cause a (temporary, washable) greenish tinge. I can put a coat of skin guard on them if you like, which will delay (not prevent) both the discoloration and the oxidation - just add a note to seller at checkout to request it.
Earrings are about 2" in diameter. Note that the last 2 photos are for size comparison only, and show my same-size gold-filled hoops.
• I usually make these with 18 ga. wire, but if you have small-ish piercings let me know and I can make them from 20 ga. instead - they are quite a bit more delicate in 20ga, both in looks and flexibility of the earring.
