Copper Dangle Earrings with African Turquoise - Bold Exotic Jewelry
These handmade copper earrings have a bold, exotic feel and will add a touch of bohemian tribal style to your wardrobe. They feature uniquely textured copper dangles embellished with African turquoise stones.
I designed the earring shapes; sawed them out of solid copper sheet; created the texture; and then antiqued the metal for a warm, rustic glow. The turquoise stones were added to complete the look. They have beautiful hues of blue and green – along with a subtle, natural matrix of brown and black veining.
Although commonly known as African turquoise, this natural stone is a type of jasper found in Africa. It has a matrix structure similar to turquoise - with wonderful hues of green and blue, along with black and brown inclusions.
2" in length and 1-1/8" at widest point. Total length: 2-1/2" from top of niobium (hypoallergenic ear wires). Despite their impressive appearance, they are lightweight and comfortable to wear. The metal was sealed with jeweler's wax to preserve the patina.
