Measuring approx. 17mm in length with the swirl at 4 to 5mm, the ear wires are crafted from 20 gauge pure copper wire. The wire is measured, cut, filed, shaped, hammered, tumbled to strengthen the metal, antiqued, and brush finished to bring up the coppery highlights. To protect their special finish, the ear wires are dipped in metal lacquer which has also made the base metal copper more comfortable for me to wear in my own ear piercings.
You receive 1pr - Antiqued Copper Swirl Ear Wires in this listing. Please allow for slight variations in your ear wires as these are 100% handmade. I learned this technique from Venezuelan artist, Maria Zurita.
