These oval shaped earrings were created from solid copper sheet. The distinctive ridges in the design were created by a technique known as fold-forming and the earrings were then textured by hand using different hammers. They have also been slightly domed to add interest. Hand forged copper earwires were added and the earrings were oxidized, buffed and polished for that rustic look. The metal was sealed with jeweler's wax to preserve the patina and resist tarnishing.
