I fashioned these earrings after one of my smaller hoops which also features lines and balls as a main feature of the design. I flattened these ones out and gave them more of a crescent shape. They are made completely out of sterling silver down to the ear wires, which are hinged and connect in loops on the other side. The line and ball design is repeated on both sides of the hoop. They measure 1 1/4" in diameter. They have been given a patina to blacken them and were then tumbled in steel shot to give them a nice shine.
These earrings remind me of those time-lapse photos of a raindrop striking a pool of water. Circles radiate outward from the point of impact and smaller droplets become airborne.
I think so highly of these earrings that I designed a second pair nearly identical to these but smaller in size. This second pair is 3/4" in diameter and you can see a size comparison of the two in the last photo. This listing is for one pair of the larger hoops.
I can ship these out within 5 days of receiving payment.
