MADE TO ORDER
These 3" teardrop 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 teardrop shape. (measurement from top of ear wire to bottom of teardrop is approx. 3" and the widest part is approx. 2")
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 teardrop look and decided to go with crystals along one full side and just past center--I enjoy making things that are unique from everything else out there! 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
