These 22g copper earrings are 1" round and hang 1.5" to the top of the earwire. The "hill" shape was run through a rolling mill to give it a nice texture. The separate round piece was soldered on and the entire piece was dipped in a patina to accentuate the texture. The earwire is handmade from 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.
