These desert sun dangle earrings feature individually hand sawed components welded together in a fusion of bronze, copper, and sterling silver for a harmonious radiant shine in a timeless statement of fashion.

The domed backing discs measures 1.5 inches (38mm) in diameter and were sawed by hand from a flat sheet of 22 gauge bronze. Using a fine metal saw, I cut the sun's rays from 18 gauge bronze and the sun from 18 gauge sterling silver. The copper rays and sterling silver sun were soldered to the bronze discs with an acetylene torch and hammered on a dapping block to produce the dome shape which creates natural highlights when light reflects off the curved surfaces. After removing the fire scale, I followed edges of the copper sun with a very fine torch tip to oxidize the bronze, thereby adding the dark gray shadow effect around the rays. The earrings were then polished with an 80 grit silicon flap wheel for a satin finish.

The earrings measure 1.5 inches in diameter, dangle approximately 2 inches from the top of the ear wire to the bottom of the bronze disc, and hang from sterling silver hypoallergenic ear wires that are certified to be pure and void of nasty toxins like lead, nickel, or cadmium. Custom orders and special requests are always welcome. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions.
