The silver has been surface sanded and brushed, then burnished on the edges.
In the 4th picture, see a version of these earrings made with a polished surface finish.
I like a modern and simple, yet handmade, antique look.
To give the earrings a more rustic feel, I have taken the high polish luster of the onyx down a bit, but I can also make the earrings with a more polished surface, on the onyx as well as the silver.
While the earrings are square on the back, the settings follow the onyx cubes' somewhat uneven surface on the front -- very organic and contemporary.
These hand made ear dangles measure about 25 millimeters (barely 1 inch) from the top of the ear wire to the bottom of the earrings, and about 14 millimeters (9/16") wide.
Made to order. This listing is for a pair very similar to the earrings in the pictures.
