These brass earrings were cut 1 1/4" wide and 1" long from 22g brass sheet.  One side was hammered in horizontal and vertical lines while the other side was dappled with a small hammer.  The piece was then annealed (heated), folded and then opened back up.  A patina was applied to enhance the textures.


The earring hangs 1 3/8" to the top of the earwire which is 20g sterling silver wire that was soldered on.

  • All of my earrings are sealed with either a paste wax or a spray sealer.  If they do tarnish, just polish with a jewelry polishing cloth.  Each piece comes with an anti-tarnish pad which should be kept with the earrings.
