Item details

Handmade

Material

Copper

These delicate teardrops are hand shaped from 16 gauge genuine copper wire, hand hammered all along the bottom curve, then tumbled for hardness and shine. The ear wires are from 20 gauge copper wire. The overall measurement is about 2.25" and the diameter is around 1".

All of my jewelry is custom made by me at my home studio in Missoula, MT.

Since this is genuine, non coated copper, it will acquire a patina over time. Although some people appreciate the more rustic look of aged copper, others prefer their copper jewelry to remain shiny. The best way to clean and restore copper to its original shine is to submerge the earrings in about 1/2 cup of lemon juice to which has been added about a Tablespoon of coarse sea salt (it's not an exact formula). Let it soak for a minute or two, rinse and dry thoroughly. I save the lemon juice in a glass bowl in the fridge until I need it again. It will keep for a couple of months, or until it is really cloudy.
