Bold and exotic, these tribal shield earrings make a striking statement. They feature handcrafted brass accented with dalmatian jasper & black jasper stones. This type of jasper is known for its spotted pattern that resembles the Dalmatian breed of dog. The matrix consists of mineral inclusions of brown iron oxide, black tourmaline & other minerals which create the natural "spots" in the stone.
MEASUREMENTS: Total length: 2-7/8” from top of bronze ear wires and 7/8” at widest point. I created the shapes out of solid gold brass sheet; hammered the metal for an organic texture; then oxidized it to enhance the detail. The metal was sealed with jeweler's wax to resist tarnishing.
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.
