Gorgeous bronzite gemstones were combined with handmade copper dangles to create these earthy, rustic earrings. The stones are a wonderful shade of chocolate brown, along with natural metallic inclusions and subtle hints of shimmery gold. Bronzite is a mineral that shares characteristics with rock that is found in meteorites, such as iron. It is this blend of several minerals which gives bronzite its unique mottled characteristic.

I combined the stones with handmade metal dangles, which I created out of solid copper sheet. I hammered the metal to create an organic texture and then oxidized it to enhance the details. The texture in the metal "echoes" the organic texture in the stones.

MEASUREMENTS:
Total length: 2-1/2" from top of niobium (hypoallergenic) ear wires and 3/4" at widest point.

They are signed on the back with my initials. The metal was sealed with jeweler's wax to preserve the patina.

These earrings have a coordinating necklace: https://www.silverandearth.com/product/copper-bronzite-stone-necklace-earthy-natural-brown-stone-jewelry

All of my jewelry is my own original design and handcrafted by me in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA.
