Handmade beads held by an oxidized copper wire. The ear wire is out of oxidized sterling silver.
I always get asked, if the earrings are heavy, and if they break easily. So here is my scientific test ;-)
I took some test beads and dropped them several times on the cement floor. They didn't chip or break.
The weight of one earring is comparable to a Canadian dollar.
size: 2 3/4"
The model is showing a different earring, but it's the same size.
