These hammered bronze earrings have been painstakingly aged with a 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 hooks of the earrings a soft matte bronze so that the blue stands out in contrast. I've lightly sanded the patina off of the tops of the earrings so that it stays rich and vibrant in the hammer strikes, but the earrings have little pops of bright patina in between where the metal is raised. They're 2.5 inches long.
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 are entirely bronze, including the earwires.
