Rising and Setting - Sterling Silver Copper Dangle Beach Stone Earrings

Description

Simple, modernist style, hand fabricated long dangle earrings with copper granules. Hand formed in sterling silver. The symbolism behind this design is eighteenth century alchemy symbols meaning rising and setting; signifying the moon's nodes. 

Materials:
Sterling Silver
Copper
Beach Stones 

Technique: 
Each sterling silver wire is hand formed and hammered.
I hand soldered with a steady hand, torched copper granules. 
Each sterling silver wire connection, ring, and ear wire on these earrings has been soldered for strength and stability. 
I hand drilled beach stones that I found near the Central Coast of California. 
I added a patina-oxidation to the earrings to enhance the details.

Measurements:
Ear wires: 20 gauge - 1 inch in length.
Total length: a touch under 2 3/4 inches-from the top of ear wire to the end point of the beach stone.

Weight: 0.1 1/2 of an ounce per earring. Total weight for the pair: 0.3 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.
