Description

Ready to Ship!Materials: Cotton thread, bronze niobium ear wire, copper wire and ring, artist's wire. Lapis lazuli, Swarovski crystal, Czech glass, Japanese delica seed beads. Dimensions: 4 6/8" from top of ear wire, 2 5/8" at widest point of design. Ear wire is 5/8" from top to point of earring connection, ~5/8" at widest point........................................................................Rich indigo and magenta cotton thread crocheted into a lacy diamond shaped design. To contrast shapes I added an antiqued copper ring with my favorite roughly faceted lapis beads on magenta artist's wire. Along the bottom edges of the diamond shape and very top I attached small copper links with faceted beads including a deep iridescent Swarovski crystal at the center. The corners feature an unusual matte magenta bead with faint iridescence. I believe these were handmade, however they have been in my collection for so long they are probably considered vintage at this point. The copper wire will naturally tarnish slightly over time and blend with the deeper bronze of the copper beads. The magenta artist's wire is coated to prevent tarnishing. For the ear wire I formed a small hoop shaped hook out of niobium wire which is chosen for its hypoallergenic properties, lightweight nature, and resistance to corrosion.What can I say? I am just a little obsessed with the richness of these colors with the copper wire accents........................................................................Though I take care to make my work to last, do not swim or shower with these on. Avoid contact with hairsprays, oils, or lotions as the fabric could stain just like any other. My wire work is wrapped carefully, but be mindful not to crush or bend.Color can appear slightly different due to lighting conditions or monitor settings. Items may appear larger or smaller in some cases, so please check measurements. Natural variations are the nature of stones, fiber, and handmade creations in general. Please feel free to message me with any inquiries........................................................................Note: all items created in my home studio in the company of four felines. Though they are not an active part of the creation of these, there may be a little "cat magic" that makes its way into my work. If you have allergies you may want to take that into consideration with any fiber pieces........................................................................Returns are not accepted. Please contact me with any questions or concerns before purchase., copper jewelry
