This piece is entirely hand crafted. It is hammered to form an anticlastic curve, which has been left open. The inside of the curve is reddened through heat and then highly polished. The outside is left matte for contrast.
Beautiful modern piece.
Fits medium sized wrists. The opening is approximately 3/4 of an inch wide.
Hand hammered copper and silver married metals and turquoise hanging earrings. The texture of these earrings shimmer in the light. The warmth of copper and the coolness of silver combine to set off three small turquoise stones in each earring.
Reminds me of the sun and the moon – or the Red Rocks of Sedona at twilight – blue sky (almost turquoise and periwinkle), warm earth, cool air. One of my favorite places to be at dusk! Magical.
Entirely hand-fabricated (hand made). No two earrings are alike. 3 inches long, 1/2 inch wide. Silver wire. Signed “Matagi Sorensen” on the back of each earring.
These earrings are made of hand-hammered copper and silver and set with turquoise. They are approximately three inches long and about half an inch wide. The texture on the surface creates the effect of small waves catching light.
The ripples in the metal vary with each earring due to the hand-hammered process.
Silver and copper with turquoise is a southwestern favorite that carries over into any setting – from east coast to far east!

It is rare to find stones like these, so I was so excited when I came across them. This particular set of stones comes from southern Arizona which is also a plus. (I like to buy locally when I can – and the southwest has great gems and minerals to chose from).
Azurite is a deep blue copper mineral, and so it is found in areas where there are copper deposits. Because azurite and malachite have a similar chemical composition, they can be found together, making a striking color combination of deep blue and bright green. (Wikipedia)
These earrings are hand-cut and hand-hammered. It is increasingly difficult to find stones like these, so I don’t know when I will be making my next pair.
