Hammered Bronze, Gemstone and Gold Earrings
These lightweight earrings have fabulous and elegant presence! Each earring is composed of 1 handmade Bronze "Stix" component (1-5/8" x 1/8"). These components were hand made with Bronze Clay (BRONZclay*). The clay was rolled, hammered, shaped, dried, refined and kiln fired for several hours. The resulting solid bronze "stix" were then tumbled and polished and sealed to reveal a warm golden hue. The "stix" components sway beneath a trio of 5mm Labradorite rondelles that are separated by 4mm - 14Kt. Gold Fill saucer beads. The Labradorite is really pretty and has flashes of blue. The dangles are suspended from 14KT. Gold Fill shepherd hooks. These earrings are a shade under 3" long. *BRONZclay 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!
