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.

Sun, Moon, and Triple Goddess Earrings

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.

Entirely hand-fabricated (hand made). No two earrings are alike. 3 inches long, 1/2 inch wide. Signed “Matagi Sorensen” on the back of each earring.

Married Metals Dangling Earrings

I love working with organic shapes. Curves make me happy. The colors in these earrings mirror the southwest beautifully.

These copper and silver earrings are two and three-quarter inches long and half an inch wide. Hand-hammered and one-of-a-kind. Comfortable to wear, very light.

The variations on the surface of the metal are due to the creation process; they create a ripple effect with light further enhancing the fluid line of the design.

Married Metals and Turquoise Dangling Earrings

Dangling Married Metals and Turquoise Earrings

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.

Azurite Malachite Dangling Earrings

Azurite Malachite Dangling Earrings

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.

Sun Meets Moon Shield – Married Metals Hand Hammered Earrings

I made these earrings last week in preparation for Tucson Meet Yourself, an annual folk festival in Tucson. I wish I made more than one pair because it sold immediately.

This pair is made of silver and copper hand hammered married metals with turquoise. They were a lot of fun to make! They look great on everyone.
