Hand-hammered miniature polished silver bowls nest in hand-hammered heated and polished copper bowls. The back of the copper and the edges are left unpolished, and the color will deepen over time. The circular shapes coupled with the hand-hammered natural quality of the silver and copper bowls give the earrings a “mod” look with a raw, organic nuance.

Tear-Shaped Copper Top and Silver Pendant
Highly polished copper and silver balance one another as the warmth of rich copper softly dips in with its concave shape with cool silver acts as copper’s base. This piece is very tactile, the shape is inviting to touch.
The rich reds and purples of the copper are drawn out by highly heating it. I never know exactly how the copper will look before I heat it, though that is the beauty of the process. This once reminds me of the rich colors of a southwestern sunset.
Hollow form, hand-crafted and one-of-a-kind. Signed on the back. Approximately an inch tall by about 3/4 inches wide. Shown with a 7-strand black omega necklace.
