Copper Earrings with chains

Made from reclaimed copper and sterling silver with a patina finish.

A wonderful customer brought me lots of copper wire from a remodel he was working on. He hoped that I'd make something from it.

I finally got out my hammer & mandrel and began to shape the wire. The dark silver and shiny red tone to the copper make a gorgeous contrast. The copper will gradually patina too. No worries if you want that bright finish back. A few wipes with a polishing cloth will revive the shine.
