Inspired by the intriguing texture found on sea urchin shells, these blade earrings will take you easily from your daytime activities to a night on the town. Sheet copper has been cut, filed and shaped into a half-moon, blade style hoop. The sea urchin texture is achieved by using a variety of metal stamps in both a positive and negative stamping pattern. A verdigris patina has been applied and sealed with microcrystaline wax. These lightweight earrings are 2" long from the bottom of the blade to the top of the handformed sterling silver earwire. I have a pair of these earrings and receive numerous compliments every time I wear them!
