These baroque-textured copper earrings have a patina created by painting the metal with a flame. The fire brings out the brilliant spectrum of color hidden behind the usual copper color. Finished with a blue metallic glass bead and stainless steel ear wires, these are a great, lightweight pair of everyday dangles.

 Crafted with traditional metal working techniques in West Oakland from ethically sourced materials


Materials:

copper, glass bead, sterling silver, stainless steel ear wires

Unlike most metals which must be refined from ores, copper occurs in nature ready to be used. It was the first metal humans learned to smelt, the first we learned to cast into shapes and the first we mixed with other metals to form alloys. We've come a long way in the last 10,000 years, but we still love the red-orange luster of a nice shiny piece of copper!
