Recycled Sterling Silver Sewn Copper Blade Earrings - One of a Kind
Bold, yet lightweight earrings by Bijoutiful ~ Amber Yearwood. The focal shapes are drawn and cut by hand from copper sheet metal, then filed along the edges to remove any sharp bits. They are drilled, textured with a hammer, and tumbled in steel shot to impart added strength and durability.
They are oxidized with liver of sulfur (non-toxic) and selectively sanded to make the texture's detail really stand out, then buffed with a thin layer of micro-crystalline wax to help preserve the finish. A large "X" is sewn with bright recycled sterling silver wire to the center, adding even more contrast. A large, pebble-shaped vintage faux turquoise plastic bead with a crackled appearance packs a strong punch of color into these bold, earthy earrings. Lightweight for their size and very comfortable to wear.
They are hung from my own handmade, recycled sterling silver earwires.
Measures approx. 2.5", 6.35 cm long
