The Beauty of Copper and Brass

By Kirkeby
There's no doubt about the fact that I love silver - Sterling, Argentium, Fine. It's my favorite metal! There are times, though, when you just want to do something different and that's what I've been up to these past couple of weeks. Playing! Ok, I know...it's all playing...but this time I had some fun with different metals. Let me introduce you to three new pair of earrings: Copper Wraps, Riveting Copper and Gimme Some Brass (antiqued, that is). Each pair of these earrings are handmade, lightweight and totally unique.

The Beauty of Copper and Brass

Riveting Copper

Copper Wraps are lightly hammered and wrapped with 3 feet of Argentium Sterling silver wire. They are patinaed, polished and finished so they won't further tarnish. The earwires on each of these earrings are handmade from Argentium Sterling silver wire. These beauties are 3" long, including the earwire.

Copper Wraps

Riveting Copper earrings are also lightly hammered and wrapped with an even thinner piece of copper that has been fold formed to create the creases. Holes were then drilled and 14 gauge Fine Silver wire was balled and then riveted in place. Again, patinaed, polished and finished to avoid further tarnish. Also 3" long, including the earwire.

Gimme Some Brass


Gimme Some Brass earrings were just a lot of fun to make! They are made from antiqued brass that is riveted together with 14KY Gold Filled tube rivets. The Argentium Sterling silver loop at the bottom holds a stunning turquoise nugget that can't fall off because freshwater half-drilled pearls are fixed to the ends of the wire. These earrings are 3" long, including the earwire.
