Gold and Turquoise Earrings
These earrings have understated elegance! Each earring is composed of 1 - solid Bronze teardrop (1-1/4" long). These teardrops started out as BRONZclay*. The clay was prepared, stamped with a Aztec inspired design, dried, refined and kiln fired for several hours. The resulting solid bronze drops were then polished and sealed to reveal and preserve the warm golden hue. The drops sway beneath faceted 6mm Turquoise Howlite stones. The dangles are suspended from 14KT. Gold Fill ear wires.
The earrings are a shade over 2" long from the top of the ear wire to the bottom tip of the dangle. *BRONZclayTM consists of 11% tin, 89% copper, water and non-toxic binding materials. The binding materials vaporize completely during the kiln-firing process, leaving a solid bronze piece with a density 90% that of cast bronze. This precious metal is very hard and durable - making it perfect for jewelry!
