These hammered brass earrings have been painstakingly aged with a deep turquoise blue patina - a process that takes a week for each pair of earrings and creates an utterly unique and compelling collection of textures and colors. Each pair of earrings and each batch is unique - shaped by humidity, exposure time, and the way that the patina sits on the metal. I've kept the tops of the earrings a soft matte brass so that the blue stands out in contrast. I hammered the bottom of the earrings nice and wide so that they have more room to feature the patina and to create a long, elegant taper.
This is a limited edition run. After the patina process, the earrings are sealed to slow the patination process. That said, patina is on-going, which means that your earrings will very slowly continue to change over their lifespan. Just as each pair will have a unique patina when you receive it, each will also age slightly differently.
The earrings are stamped with my maker's mark on the back, and the earwires are 14K gold fill to reduce any concerns with allergies.
