Copper Clay Earrings

Copper Clay Earrings

Adorable little copper earrings made out of copper clay and kiln fired. Once fired, the clay binds together and it is solid copper! I put a light touch of gilded silver over the hand buffed patina which give these little earrings an extra boost. Light, easy to wear and so pretty! As always, my copper pieces are hand made, unique and sealed with a hypoallergenic sealant. They measure 1 1/2" from the top of the earwire to the bottom of the dangle.

Ocean Blue Czech Crystal Swirl Hoop Earrings

Ocean Blue Czech Crystal Swirl Hoop Earrings

These earrings are made from stunning extra-large ocean blue Czech crystal bicone beads and reclaimed copper. I fashioned these earrings by forming a hoop out of round, recycled copper wire and then swirling the wire around the hoop like ribbons on a wrapped gift. The Czech crystal beads dangle from the inside of the hoop by stacking them and wire wrapping them to resemble the wrapped ribbon on the hoop part of the earring. .

They are about 2 1/2 inches from the ear wire to the bottom of each earring and 1 11/2 inches wide at the widest part of the hoop. The earrings have a double swing motion - the hoops swing on the ear wire and the dangle swings inside of the hoop - so there's a wonderful play of light and movement each time you take a step or move your head. I love the way the clear ocean blue of the beads complements the hand rubbed patina of the copper. The highlights of the copper patina bring out the texture and shape of the copper and gives off a warm, rich glow. These great Boho earrings will really make a statement about you and your unique style.

I reclaimed the copper from areas around Colorado Springs. After I finished creating the earrings, I sealed them permanently with a special sealant to preserve the finish and prevent allergic reactions on the skin.

Five Domed Brass and Seed Bead Earrings

Five Domed Brass and Seed Bead Earrings

These fun earrings have hand cut brass discs that I domed and stacked on a center spindle made from brass wire that I flattened on one end. I hand buffed the discs to bring out shine and luster. The discs are separated by silver lined gold seed beads that add an inner light to the recesses of the domes. I put another seed bead at the top before I wire wrapped the earring to hand fashioned ear wires.

The earrings measure 2 inches from the top of the ear wire to the bottom of the earring. The entire earring is sealed with a permanent protective sealant to preserve the finish and guard against skin allergies.

Hammered Copper, Goldstone, Dichroic Glass Earrings

Hammered Copper, Goldstone, Dichroic Glass Earrings

I cut these these dangle earrings from a 24 gauge copper sheet then textured them and domed them. In the middle of each dome there is a small wire wrapped goldstone bead and then each dome is attached to a beautiful piece of dichroic glass. The gold flecks in the goldstone catch the light and reflect the warm hues of the copper. The dichroic glass gleams with rich copper colors that range from a deep red rust to a golden yellow depending on the way the light hits them. Finally, I applied the patina and hand rubbed to bring out the highlights. They are light and fun to wear. They have great movement and obviously do fabulous things when they catch the light.

The earrings are about 2 3/4 inches from the top of the ear wire to the bottom of the dome.

Most of the copper I use has been reclaimed from salvage yards around Colorado Springs and the entire piece is permanently sealed to preserve the finish and prevent allergic reactions on the skin.

I gave the earrings a wonderful golden brown hand rubbed patina which brings out the texture of each hoop.

Funky German Silver and Radiant Orchid Pearl Earrings

Funky German Silver and Radiant Orchid Pearl Earrings

Radiant Orchid is Pantone's Color of the Year!
I made these fantastic earrings from German silver wire that I hammered and shaped to form the hoops. I wire wrapped three beautiful gleaming glass pearl earrings to dangle from the bottom in different lengths. The pearls can swing freely back and forth, but are held at the bottom with tight wire wrapping. The warm glow of the German silver and the bright shine of the pearls catch the light in an incredible way as the hoops move and sway with your every step. The earrings are about 3 inches long from the top of the ear wire to the bottom of the longest pearl dangle.

Long Reclaimed Copper Three Ring Earrings with Brass Accents

Long Reclaimed Copper Three Ring Earrings with Brass Accents

I made these earrings by taking thick, reclaimed copper wire and fashioning them into interconnected rings that I soldered together. I then hammered the rings flat and wire wrapped sections of the earrings with half round brass wire for an interesting color contrast. I gave the earrings a wonderful golden brown hand rubbed patina which brings out the texture of each ring, deliberately showing the hammer blows which heighten the Boho feel of the earrings.

The earrings are almost 3inches long from the top of the ear wire to the bottom of the last ring - long enough to be noticed through long hair and to peep out from shorter hair or really stand out with an updo!

The interconnected hoops move independently of the other two rings which gives the earrings great movement and swing. The earrings are surprisingly light and so fun to wear!

These fantastic earrings have a lot of detail and texture. I first fashioned the frame of the earrings from large gauge yellow brass wire and then cut German silver wire to size.
