These handmade copper earrings have a Chinese character motif. Each copper rectangle has Chinese writing stamped into it. The characters are a small bit of a larger piece of writing, so they really don't mean anything. I have added ear wires made of niobium that have been annodized to look like aged copper. These earrings will go with tons of outfits: casual wear, especially any earthtones. The perfect gift for anyone who likes Asian style.

These are also available in optional bronze with un-annodized (silver colored) niobium wires. (not pictured)

I made the rectangular copper charms from copper clay. This is a material made from particles of real copper mixed with an organic binder. It is similar to clay. In this case, I stamped the charms with Chinese characters. After the charms are formed, dried and the rough spots sanded off, I fire them in the kiln at about 1600 degrees Fahrenheit. At that temperature, all the organic binder burns out and only the copper is left.

These are traditional Chinese characters, which are more complicated and artistic than the newer simplified characters. The round or oval symbols with characters inside are chops, or signature stamps. Since each charm is individually handmade, they will not be exactly alike. Each one is unique and there will be slight variations, including the characters themselves and their placement on the charms. The charms also have a patina on them to show the detail of the characters.

The Niobium that the ear wires are made from is a relative of titanium. It is very hypo-allergenic. If you cant wear these earwires I will happily exchange them for other earwires or refund your money. I think you will be pleasantly surprised!

When electrical current is applied to Niobium it will change colors. This is called annodizing, and you can get some beautiful colors. These particular earwires are supposed to be brass colored, but they look like copper to me.

Important Facts:
Earring length: 1 1/2 inches long (37 mm) from the top of the ear wire.
Charm length: 23 mm (almost an inch) long
Weight: approximately 2.5 grams per earring (lightweight!)
