Hammered Bronze, Prehnite and Sterling Silver Earrings - 1 - "Styx'
These earrings are lightweight, unique, versatile and sure to get compliments!
Each earring is composed of 1 handmade Bronze "Stix" component (1-1/4" 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 to reveal a warm golden hue.
Dangling beneath each "stix" is a 9mm Prehnite Briolette. These beads have a wonderful milky, but sparkly quality. They have been hand wrapped with non-tarnish artistic wire.
The dangles are suspended from sterling silver french ear wires. These earrings are 2" long from the top of the ear wires to the bottom tip of the dangle.
*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!
