Stunning African turquoise stones were combined with hand textured copper to create these exotic, tribal inspired earrings. I drew the shapes, sawed them out of solid copper sheet, and hand stamped the intricate pattern into the metal. The copper was oxidized, buffed and polished to bring out the deep, rich detail. Long and striking African turquoise stones were added to dangle from the bottom. Although commonly known as African turquoise, this stone is actually a type of natural jasper found in Africa. It has a matrix structure similar to turquoise - and has wonderful earthy shades of green, blue, brown and rust.

The earrings measure 2-1/2” in length and 1-1/8” in width (at the widest point), and will hang for a total length of approx. 2-3/4" from the top of the niobium (hypoallergenic) ear wires. They are signed on the back with my initials.

These earrings are unique and striking – and will make a bold and exotic tribal statement.

Recently, Etsy began adding the text "Vat included (where applicable)" and "GST included (where applicable)". I am not registered to collect tax in other countries, therefore my items DO NOT include tax. International customers are responsible for paying all taxes/duties/fees, etc. applicable to their country.
Most of my jewelry is made with sterling silver, copper or brass. Over time, all metals will eventually tarnish. The best way to prevent this is to store your piece in an airtight plastic bag when not in use. My copper and brass pieces are sealed with a tarnish resistant wax - however, over time they will eventually tarnish. Occasional cleaning with a soft polishing pad or cloth should keep your jewelry looking bright and fresh. Most of my pieces include natural stones, therefore I do not recommend jewelry cleaning dips, as this type of cleaner could damage the stones.
Payments are accepted with all major credit cards via PAYPAL or Etsy's Direct Checkout system. You can use your credit card on PayPal *without* having a PayPal account by using guest checkout.

Your payment information is secure. We do not see or have access to your credit card number. Etsy notifies us that you've placed an order, and then we prepare to ship it without ever seeing your financial information.
