Copper Earrings with African Turquoise & Pearls - Hand Forged Metal Jewelry
Bold and exotic - these copper earrings have a boho tribal vibe and will make a unique statement. They feature rustic hand forged copper shapes accented with African turquoise stones and copper freshwater pearls.
MEASUREMENTS: Total length: 2-3/4" from top of niobium (hypoallergenic) ear wires and 1-1/2” at widest point. I designed the shapes; sawed them out of solid copper sheet; then hand forged the metal for a sculptural effect. The copper was oxidized for an antiqued finish; then sealed with jeweler's wax to resist tarnishing.
► 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 earthy shades of blue, green, brown and rust.
NOTE: Please refer to measurements above. Photos are enlarged to show details.
All my jewelry is my own original design and handcrafted by me in the USA.
