These brass earrings were cut 1/2" wide and 1 1/4" long from 22g brass sheet. They were run through the rolling mill, cut and then shaped by bending slightly. A patina was applied to enhance the texture, which reminds me of snow flurries.
The earring hangs 1 3/4" to the top of the handmade earwire which is 20g sterling silver wire.
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.
