Description

Well here is my cartoon version of my father. He was the old western TV star Red Ryder.I grew up around my father and his cowboy friends and the Indians and the horses and ranching. All of that hes been a major influence on my jewelry designs. This is a profile of my father as Red Ryder,complete with his signature bandana.This earring just speaks out "You Becham Red Ryder".That was what his little Indian boy side kick "Little Beaver" would say. This earring is made from 100% copper.I have cut out the design and then hand shaped it on my old wood stump using my many hammers and tools that I have collected or built or modified. I am an old school metal smith and learned my trade in the south west.I am in total awe of all the techniques and designs of the old generation Indian silver smiths.I learned silver smithing from them and learned the methods of finding metal objects and adapting for metal work.
And then we move into modern times and many techniques and materials come on the market to build jewelry with.
I fell in love with copper many years ago and have loved working with it sense.I built this earring using many of the old school shapping and forming techniques.The edges are smooth and will not catch your clothing.They are built very light weight so your ear will not complain.I use a surgical steel ear wire or post on this pair.
Size 2 1/4 inch long from the top of the ear wire, 1 1/2 inch wide.

FAQs

I have worked with individual store and gallery owners to also working with sales reps who sell world wide... I understand the process...!!! Again just ask and see if we can work together.
Since I have been a silver smith and stone cutter for over 45 years. I get to see a lot of broken jewelry to repair and have over the years written many a care instructions based on knowledge learned in my career..I do send some with my jewelry orders.. Some stones can need special care and also certain jewelry needs certain care..
I also put into my designs over 45 years of jewelry making and seeing firsthand what breaks stone and jewelry and design into my jewelry so it will last a lifetime and has..!! Again just a question away...just ask..
