MADE TO ORDER
These 3.25" marquis hoop earrings are hand forged from copper or Sterling Silver wire, hammered for texture, then the delicate 3mm Czech Preciosa crystals are added by weaving with fine wire into an asymmetrical pattern (copper is oxidized and polished). They are entirely made my hand; the ear wires, jump-rings and marquis shape. (measurement from top of ear wire to bottom of marquis is approx. 3.25" and the widest part is approx. 1.5")
Please select your metal and crystal color from the options menu.
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 marquis look and decided to go with crystals along one full side only--I enjoy making things that are different than what you see everywhere else! They as well compliment the other pieces in the Czech Preciosa Crystal Collection (Y-drop lariat necklaces and hand chains)
Copper is naturally lead and nickel free; wonderful for those with metal sensitivities.
Copper and Sterling Silver 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
