Latte Shell Czech Nostalgia Crystal Copper Chain Niobium Earrings
Sandy beaches are characterized in these acrylic latte shell earrings decorated with copper chains and Czech fire-polished crystals. To begin making my "Nostalgia" earrings I selected these acrylic shells with swirling white, brown and tan shades. A twisted copper ring was used to add delicious and warm copper oval chain in various lengths. At the end of end length of copper chain I hand-wrapped Czech fire-polished crystals to create sparkling dangles. The finish on these Czech crystals are unique in that it gives a real vintage look. The crystals are a subtle purple, green and blue with a vintage bronze coating. Check out the close-up photo to see the colors and soft sheen of these crystals. The completed drop was then attached to another antique copper twisted jump ring. These jump rings remind me of aged ropes that you would find on old ships.
The entire earring dangle was then attached to antique copper niobium ear wires that I embellished by added another Czech fire-polished crystal. The color of this crystal is known as crystal golden shade. Niobium is a wonderful metal for anyone with metal sensitive ears. Niobium is related to the titanium family and the color is achieved by a patented heat process by a company called TierraCast. These are never plated or dyed and are produced in the United States.
The earrings dangle approximately 2 1/2 inches or 6.3 centimeters in length from the tops of the niobium ear wires to the bottom of the longest crystal chain. The earrings will come packaged in an organza pouch for storing or gift giving.

Note: Please be aware that not all monitors will show colors exactly the same. The colors may appear lighter or darker based on the type of monitor you have. As I edit my photos I ensure they are as exact as they can be to my jewelry pieces. Natural and artificial lighting can enhance or diffuse shades of stones and crystals as you wear them. I also use different backgrounds in my photos so that you can see some of the color variance. Enjoy!
