Ombre Tupelo - Handmade. Oxidized, textured sterling silver Earrings
"Ombre Tupelo" - Dangles inspired by the shape of the leaves of a Tupelo tree were given an oxidized patina that was carefully buffed along the curves to reflect how the sunlight dances off the edge of leaves..
Heavy 16 gauge sterling wire has been cut, filed, annealed, meticulously shaped into Tupelo leaf shapes, soldered, forged with my favorite hammer, textured with a different hammer (which I am also quite fond of ;) & then given an oxidized patina layer by layer that I carefully removed in certain areas to add depth to the design.
Playfully dangling from my handforged sterling silver earwires.
From top of the earwire to the bottom of leaf is approximately 2 1/4 inches.
* These are MADE TO ORDER. Please allow 7-10 business days for orders with standard shipping to ship. Rush shipping options are available.
* All pieces are lovingly fabricated by my two little hands (with help from a few pair of pliers, a couple of my favorite hammers & my handy torch) in my loft studio on my little farm in Oglethorpe County, GA.
