The pattern of the metal in these earrings reminds me of snow falling and icecicles hanging from the eaves.
These are 22g Argentium silver sheet that was annealed (heated), run through the rolling mill, cut, and then patinaed to bring out that texture. A piece of 8g wire was also run through the rolling mill and hangs from a 10mm sterling silver jump ring. Simple, but elegant!
The earwires are handmade from 20g Argentium silver wire. The earrings hang approximately 2.5" from top of the earwire. FUN, FUN, FUN to wear!
Argentium silver is very tarnish resistant. However, an anti-tarnish pad is included with these earrings and should be stored with them when not being worn. A good jewelry polishing cloth should remove any tarnish if it appears.
