These African tribal shield earrings have a rich, ethnic tribal esthetic and will make a bold statement! They feature handmade copper shields accented with earthy, natural turquoise.

I created the shields out of solid copper sheet, and then hammered the metal for a rustic, primal texture. The metal was oxidized, buffed and polished to bring out the rich detail - and then sealed with jeweler's wax to preserve the patina. Natural turquoise nuggets were added to complete the tribal look. The stones are a gorgeous shade of blue-green, along with a natural matrix.

MEASUREMENTS: 2” in length and 1” at widest point. Total length: 2-3/4” from top of ear wires. They are shown with my hand forged copper ear wires. If you prefer niobium (hypoallergenic) ear wires - chose that option and I will switch them prior to sending. The earrings are signed on the back with my initials.

NOTE: Please refer to measurements above. Photos are enlarged to show details.

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