These hand forged copper earrings evoke the look of a cool and refreshing oasis hidden amongst the rolling sand dunes of life's desert.
Hand forged from flat copper sheet metal using a technique called fold forming, the copper is repeatedly hammered and heated until the rippling texture is formed. A special patina is applied to give it the beautiful blue-green hues as pictured. The earrings have been coated in a protective lacquer to preserve the patina colours. Sterling silver loops and handmade French ear hooks complete the look.
These earrings are a reminder that you have the power to form your own imaginary oasis. A place of peace and tranquility from the stress of the day.
Due to the processes required to hand form and colour the metal, no two earrings are ever alike. The variation and uniqueness add to the beauty of handcrafted art.
Dimensions: approximately 5 cm (or 2") long by 2.5 cm (or 1") wide
