These 2.75" petal hoop earrings are hand forged from copper wire, hammered for texture, then the delicate 3mm garnet red Czech Preciosa crystals are added by weaving with fine wire into a full bottom point pattern. They are entirely made by hand; both the ear wires and petal shape, please allow for slight variances in the petal. (measurement from top of ear wire to bottom of petal is approx. 2.75" and the widest part of the petal is just over 1.5")
I wanted to create a hoop earring that had a bit of a softer look to it...so after many hours of experimenting and many many steps of shaping, hammering, reshaping... I created this petal look. By far my favorite out of all the shapes I had created, I thought they would look even more beautiful with just a touch of sparkle added to them!
Copper is naturally lead and nickel free; wonderful for those with metal sensitivities.
Copper will patina (darken) over time but can be brightened up again with a soft polishing cloth.
Arrives beautifully packaged; wrapped in black tissue paper inside a LITVA'S Jewelry gift box tied with red string
