Tattered Tears - Handmade. Oxidized, textured sterling silver Earrings
"Tattered Tears" - Worn & weathered just like your favorite pair of jeans in a flattering oval tear shape.. also available in 2" self-locking hoops in a separate listing.
Heavy 16 gauge sterling wire has been cut, filed, annealed, meticulously shaped into a tear drop, 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 removed by brushing & polishing by hand to bring depth to all the nuances & crevices =) .
Playfully dangle from my handforged sterling silver earwires.
From top of the earwire to the bottom of tear is just a tiny bit shy of 3 inches. (I'm happy to make these in a smaller version as well - feel free to contact me!)
* 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.
