Description

Comedy Tragedy Earrings, Hand-Cast Bronze or Sterling Silver, Mask, Face, Figural, Theater, Drama, Acting, Thespian

The agony and the ecstasy! These masks were cast from vintage charms in solid nickel-free bronze using lost-wax casting. I start with a wax model created from my own mold, and then a plaster mold is made from the wax. I added two holes on each mask to attach chain. Liquid metal is poured into the mold and heated in a kiln to create the final product, which is then tumbled, tumbled, and tumbled again, and polished to bring out the shine. Bronze is available now, but can be cast in sterling silver also. Please allow 10-14 days for casting in sterling.

The two masks associated with drama represent the traditional division between comedy and tragedy (laughing/weeping). They are symbols of the ancient Greek Muses, Thalia and Melpomene. Thalia was the Muse of comedy, while Melpomene was the Muse of tragedy. Wonderful for theater/film people, actors, directors, mask enthusiasts, or anyone who loves these iconic symbols.

The earrings measure 2 1/4" from the top of the ear wire, but chain can be adjusted upon purchase. The earrings hang from textured antique brass chain and lever-back antique brass ear wires that are secure as well as lead and nickel-free. Width: .5 inches (1/2"). I use a sealant on the bronze to protect the finish.

Here's a recent customer review of these earrings: "I bought this as a birthday gift and they were a total hit! WONDERFUL quality, shipped fast, seller was friendly and awesome. Would definitely do business again. The pieces are beautiful and very well done. "

Please allow 10-14 days for fabrication in sterling silver.
