Copper diamond shaped stud earrings
Starting with a sheet of copper I saw out by hand the individual diamond shapes, hammer the surface to create a lovely tactile texture and then dome each one before soldering on a sterling silver post to the back.
I love the beautiful colours copper can turn when you heat it, reds, oranges, umber, and I offer these earrings in two colour finish options; shiny or heat coloured. With the shiny finish I remove the surface heat colour and with the heat colour I leave them the colour they turned under the torch. Please be aware that the colours do vary, but all are beautiful.
These copper fronts measure about 10mm, the posts and butterfly backs are sterling silver.
These earrings will come on a branded earring card in an organza bag and wrapped up in tissue paper. They’ll also come with a jewellery care card and make a perfect gift to give or to keep.
I try to keep these in stock but do have to make to order when demand is high so please allow up to two weeks for delivery. Message me for a lead time if you are curious and I'll happily let you know.
Please bare in mind that each item is handmade, therefore variations in texture are all part of their charm.
Check out the Jewellery Care page for cleaning and care information.
I give each earring a couple of coats of a clear metal lacquer or wax, this helps to slow the oxidisation process copper is renowned for This will eventually wear off as the item is worn but you can always recoat it with a metal lacquer (or clear nail varnish).
