Handmade House Centipede Insect Earrings in Copper & Sterling Silver
One part creepy, one part beautiful. Show the world that there is beauty beyond the obvious places. You just have to look a little harder for it and be brave when you find it.
These earrings are asymmetrical with one negative silhouette and one positive silhouette
These earrings are completely handmade in the USA by the designer from pure sterling silver and custom-etched copper plates.
The copper plates on the earrings measure 7/16" (1.1 cm) x 7/8" (2.2 cm) -- the total drop adds about 3/4" for a total length of 1-5/8" (4.1 cm)
After preparing the art for this design, I use an acid bath to etch the artwork deep into the copper plates. The copper plates and sterling silver components are then soldered together using good, old-fashioned silversmithing techniques . The completed earrings were then polished, hand patinated, then polished again to restore the gorgeous, bright copper glow.
These are made-to-order, so please allow 1-2 weeks for completion.
