These hand forged copper earrings have a modern tribal aesthetic - along with an earthy, rustic vibe. A great pair of unique handmade earrings that can be worn with a variety of outfits and styles!
 
I designed the shapes, sawed them out of solid copper sheet, and then hand forged the metal for a sculptural effect. The metal was oxidized, buffed and polished for an antiqued finish. African turquoise stones and copper pearls complete the tribal inspired look.
 
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. These particular stones have rusty copper inclusions - which blends well with the copper metal.
