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 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. They're 2.75 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 the earwires are bronze.
