These 'Cobra' fold formed earrings are made of Sterling Silver.

Fold forming is a technique developed by master goldsmith Charles Lewton-Brain. It is a wonderful new way of forming sheet metal quickly into a 3-D shape and textured design. "Developed between 1980 and present, it is a conceptual approach to metalsmithing that emphasizes forming using the metals characteristics." (Charles Lewton-Brain)

The earrings are made to be worn to frame the face. They do not match which gives them a unique look but are quite similar. The pattern was created using a Roll Print technique. The metal is put through a rolling mill with the desired texture, leaving the design imprinted on the silver.

The 'cobra's' eyes are hand made balls of sterling silver were hand made as well as the ear wire.

The earrings measure about 3 inches with a 10mm ear wire. The 'cobra's body is approximately 6mm wide. They are a one of a kind.
