Materials

solid cast bronze, gold filled post, porcupine quill, soldered brass jumpring

These simple earrings add an unexpected touch of elegance to any outfit. Black porcupine quills swing from gleaming bronze.

THE DETAILS
From the top of the stud to the bottom of the quill, these earrings measure 3 1/4" long (82 mm) ; the studs have a diameter of 3/8" (10 mm). The posts are 20 gauge (the standard weight) and made of 14k gold-filled wire to prevent irritation to your skin.

THE PROCESS
The metal elements of these earrings are hand-carved in wax and cast in solid bronze and brass using the lost wax process. As with all my pieces, these earrings are cast in small batches with a local business. Pieces are soldered by me and finished by hand in my studio. Each piece receives a great deal of care and attention to craft.

THE MATERIALS
All Ibis Elements pieces are cast in a lustrous, high-quality yellow bronze or brass. With time, these metals develop a subtle patina that deepens the character and charm of a piece. Please be aware that some people’s skin takes on a slight greenish cast when in prolonged contact with bronze or brass. Any green marks disappear easily with soap and water. All earrings use gold-filled wire to prevent irritation.

The porcupine quills are natural; as such, please allow for slight variations in size and appearance.
