Copper Fold Formed Earrings
Brilliant copper circle earrings, hammered, textured, folded and forged hand from solid, tarnish resistant and hypoallergenic Argentium Silver.
Dangling from the ear 1-5/8" (41 mm), the circles are 1-3/16" (30 mm) at the widest.
The copper is untreated. If you want, you can let the surface gain a patine with age. Another option is to clean the copper regularly using the following method.
You'll need a small container with a lid, dish soap and white vinegar. Place the jewelry in the container and cover the piece with white vinegar. Add a couple of drops of dish soap, close the lid and shake the container for a few seconds. Remove the clean pieces and rinse with fresh water. Repeat if necessary.
I also recommend storing your untreated copper jewelry in plastic bags to keep it from oxidizing.
All my pieces are made by me, by hand. Although I do use the occasional powered tool, such as my mini drill press, I do not mass produce items. Each is unique and one of a kind.
The ear wires are solid tarnish resistant hypoallergenic Argentium Silver.
