We could just get lost in the gentle texture of these earrings, created to evoke the feeling of sunlight dancing on the surface of the ocean. The slightly asymmetrical lines of the elongated rectangle further compliment the organic feel of these elegant earrings.
Handmade in our Los Angeles studio of textured brass with gold fill findings.
Limited Edition of 25. Numbered edition card provided.
We use gold fill for the earring wire. It is made in the USA of brass and gold layers and is nickel free.
Why do we use brass? The great thing about brass is that is has the appearance of gold without the price of gold. Brass is made by combining the base metals, copper and zinc. It is industry standard to use recycled copper and zinc by melting down scraps and reusing the original metals. So while we are buying our brass wire as 'new' it is made of recycled elements.
Unlike gold, brass will patina over time. We provide a polishing cloth but jewelry cleaner also works very well. For a natural solution, soak in a mix of lemon juice and water. This method works best when there is only very mild oxidation.
