These earrings made of Nu Gold or sometimes called Jeweler's Bronze or Merlin's Gold is basically brass. The alloy is 85% copper and 15% zinc. They have been patinated using a special technique to create the beautiful azure deep blue color. It took me about three days to get this intense color. Some of the nu gold shows through as a lovely contrast. The edge of the leaf has been burnished as well as the back seam giving that striking difference. Perfect with your best pair of jeans.

These earrings have been form fold like much of the other designs offered here. 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)

This original brass fold design I created involves folding the brass and forging to create the lovely subtle rippled edge when opened.

The ear wire is sterling silver bonded with 22k gold exterior. You will see a tiny silver ball at the end of the wire. That is the interior silver that is showing through.

The ear wire measures approximately 12mm. The willow leaf measures 36mm long and 10mm wide. The length of the earring from the top of the ear wire to the bottom of the leaf is approximately 48mm.

There is a light coating that has been applied to the metal that should prevent tarnish.
