1" (~2.5 cm) diameter sterling silver and copper constructions.
copper has been hammered and patinated for a rich distressed texture.
i recommend and default to using 18g earwires for all of my blade earrings, hoops, and dangles-
i prefer the way it looks, it better distributes the weight of the heavier styles, and it doesn't get bent out of shape as easily.
18g (1mm) earwires fit most people who are accustomed to wearing earrings regularly.
(if you know you absolutely need the thinnest earwire, please request a 20g (0.08mm) pair)
the last photo compares this style to a comparably sized 'petit' style, which has the wing-like 'kick' shape to the copper.
a note about my 'blade earrings'
i developed this unique style for thicker gauge earrings, but i've found it translate quite nicely to a standard earwire, as long as the wearer treats the wire carefully!
it takes a little getting used to, but you can easily take these in and out without bending the wire (only flex gently!) i will send you some tips after purchase!
thanks for looking!
