Turquoise Gold and Bronze Earrings
The texture on these discs is pretty and delicate.
Each of the earrings focuses upon a hand stamped Bronze disc (3/4"). These started out as Bronze Metal Clay (BONRZclay). The clay was conditioned, rolled, textured with a copper mat, cut, dried, refined and kiln fired for several hours. The resulting solid Bronze pieces were then antiqued and hand polished to reveal the gentle texture. This texture reminds me of etched metal.
The discs sway beneath a duo of 6mm Jasper Rondelles that are complemented with 14Kt. Gold Fill Seamless Beads.
The ear wires aere 14KT Gold Fill Shepherd Hooks.
These earrings are a shade under 2" long from the top of the ear wire to the bottom tip of the dangle.
