For these dangle earrings I cut curvilinear geometric shapes out of a sheet of nickel. Then I punched random holes of different sizes and filled some of those holes with copper and brass. The traditional riveting technique of hammering a short piece of wire alternatively from both sides usually connects two pieces of metal, but here it just creates three-dimensional bosses. These organic shapes hang from hand-made, hypoallergenic argentium sterling silver ear wires. When worn the earrings catch light and the holes create patterns. The dangle earrings hang 2 1/16 inches from the top of the earwires.
