Dimensions

I made a pair of these in silver and loved them so much I just had to make them in copper, too! They are such a great size and super comfortable. The leaves are hand shaped and hand hammered 16 gauge genuine copper wire, tumbled for extra strength. The leaves measure about 1.5" and the ear wires add an additional .75" to the overall length. I added a shiny glass Czech bead to the round ear wires, but you can slip it off if you prefer.

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.
