Tension Wheels - Sterling Silver and Copper Beach Stone Hoop Earrings

Description

New design for 2019....

Hand forged, drilled, soldered and hammered....One of a kind.

This design is inspired by Victorian era mechanical movement sketches. Sterling Silver with copper accents. 

Materials:
Sterling Silver
Copper
Beach Stones

Technique: 
Each sterling silver wire is hand formed and hammered.
Each sterling silver ear wire on these earrings has been soldered for strength and stability. 
Hand drilled small copper discs have been added to each earring that move freely. Long sterling spokes have been soldered to the hoops and do not move. 
I hand drilled beach stones that I rock hounded near the Central Coast of California. 
I added a patina to highlight the textures of the hammered metal.

Measurements:
Ear wires: 20 gauge - 1 inch in length
Total length: a touch under 3 inches in length-from top of ear wire to the end of the beach stone drop. Hoops are 1 inch in diameter.


Weight per earring. 0.2 of an ounce. Total weight of both earrings: 0.4 of an ounce.

I do my best to take accurate color pictures. Please keep in mind that colors will vary slightly from monitor to monitor.
