Handmade Copper Bar Earrings Folded Textured Antiqued
Antiqued Copper Textured Bars: The shape and texture are intense for these earrings, done by my hand. I cut the bars from copper sheet, smooth them, and then use fold-forming and hammering techniques to create three dimensions in the metal. Different hammer edges create a mix of surface textures, which lock onto the antiquing when I treat the copper with liver of sulfur.
After giving the bars a final tumble with stainless steel shot, I rub with microcrystalline wax to help protect the finish. They are finished on handmade copper jump rings and hypo-allergenic niobium earwires. The shapes are just under 1/2" wide and length is 2-1/2" from the top of the earwire.
As with all my handmade jewelry, these uniquely textured earrings come packaged in a recycled paper jewelry box and padded mailer. First Class postage includes tracking, which I notify you of upon shipping. Please see my Policies for details on ordering from this ArtFire shop. Thanks for visiting my virtual studio!

You do not have to set up a PayPal account to be able to make secure payment through their site, and I will not see your credit card number.

No personal checks are accepted; money orders will be allowed by previous email arrangement. Please make contact with me ahead of time if you request to pay by money order.
NOTE: Residents of Georgia will see sales tax added upon checkout, as I am required by law to collect and remit tax to the state.

I want you to be happy with your handmade jewelry and will work with you on any concerns you may have after purchase. Because great care is taken to describe and picture an item accurately, please choose carefully. Unworn items may be exchanged or returned for partial refund. You will be responsible for the cost of shipping a return item with delivery tracking--which cost will be refunded if an item is defective. The refund amount will be reduced by original shipping costs and a 15% handling fee. Returns or exchanges must be initiated within 7 days of receiving your item, and I must receive by mail with tracking within 14 days--in original unworn condition and secure packaging.
***BOOKS ARE NON-RETURNABLE***
For custom pieces, a minimum 50% payment will be collected in advance after agreeing to the final design and materials. Custom-made items are not returnable or refundable. Of course, I will work with you on any concerns about craftsmanship or sizing.
