A pair of niobium wire hoop earrings in a simple style and stunning warm ombré tones. These leaf-shaped hoop earrings fade from a bright gold to a warm rose-gold, to tones of magenta, fuchsia, and violet.

I formed, hammered, and anodized these by hand from niobium wire, flattening the bottom of the hoops to showcase the brilliant color range. The colorful metal shines in a way that photos can hardly capture. Niobium is wonderfully comfortable and hypoallergenic. I use niobium hoops for daily wear much of the time - I can barely feel they're on!

The color comes from an oxide layer on the niobium, formed through an electrochemical process known as anodizing, wherein the metal's surface reacts with an applied voltage. There is no dye involved. Plus, niobium is hypoallergenic – including the colorful oxide layer – so those with metal allergies can safely wear it.

Listing is for one pair (2 pieces).

Measurements, approx:
1.6" long (42mm)
1.3" (35mm) at widest
20 gauge thickness (0.8mm)
Shown with a dime for scale comparison.
