With restrictions and staffing challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, my rural Post Office is struggling to maintain service. They are working hard, with small town postmasters sharing and keeping open three different offices 40 to 60 miles apart. Still, there have been and are anticipated service disruptions in local mail deliveries and pick-up.

My shop is open and all items listed here are available to purchase online but now I am shipping items only once per week when I make my essential trip (to a larger town with fewer disruptions). This might mean your item will ship right away, or in up to 7 days. I'll keep you posted when I receive your order. Wishing you good health and hoping you stay safe in these unprecedented circumstances.

Copper "Windchime" Earrings with Turquoise Chips, Mixed Metal Sculptural Earrings

$56.00

Share:

Though they don't really chime, my copper windchime earrings are handformed sculptural earrings that are striking and fun to wear. Topped with gemstone chips of greenish blue Fox (Nevada) turquoise, bright copper curved, twisted dangles dance with your movements. The real turquoise stones are hand wired in sterling silver and the copper and turquoise mini sculptures swing on handcrafted sterling silver ear hooks. These statement earrings in mixed metals and genuine turquoise will delight you all year long - but will surely attract attention in summer with your swept up hair showing them off. These copper earrings would make a beautiful 7th anniversary gift for your wife who loves turquoise jewelry and unique wearable art.

  • Curve formed copper dangle is 2-inches long by 0.25 inch wide (51 x 6mm)

MATERIALS

  • Sterling silver wire

ADDITIONAL DETAILS

To form the copper from flat wire to twisted and curved, I worked the copper strip wire using various hammers on a heavy pine block. The strip was curved top to bottom first then twisted along its length. I love how the shadows and highlights of the polished copper give a sense of movement even at rest. As the earrings took shape in my hands, I thought of the cool wind sculptures and windchimes I've seen and figured the name was apt. Turquoise and polished copper are beautiful together and so evocative of the windy landscapes in the west and southwest.

To keep the copper looking bright, you will need to polish it from time to time. 

You will receive the exact pair of earrings pictured. Please check measurements, and the photo with the ruller to help you relate to the actual size of these unique earrings.
