These 3.25" wave dangle earrings are hand forged from copper wire, hammered for texture, then the delicate 3mm medium topaz gold Czech Preciosa crystals are added by weaving with fine wire into an asymmetrical pattern. They are entirely made by hand; both the ear wires and wave shape. (measurement from top of ear wire to bottom of wave is approx. 3.25")
After creating my petal hoop earrings I wanted to add other shapes to the mix...so after many hours of experimenting and many many steps of shaping, hammering, reshaping... I created this wave look and decided to go with crystals just along the bottom--I enjoy making things that are unique from everything else out there!
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
