These swiss cheese earrings were made with bronze metal clay which can be worked as easily as modeling clay, then fired in a kiln to burn away the binder and fuse the particles into pure solid bronze. Metal clay, because it starts out as a clay, is unbelievably versatile- the design possibilities are almost endless, the results pleasingly sculptural.
These earrings feature intense detailed textures and pattern. Sparkling 2 mm light pink cubic zirconia accents were fired in place. After firing these gorgeous earrings were filed, sanded, tumbled, and polished using traditional jewelry techniques. I prefer this deeper, more nuanced, almost antiqued "golden" bronze color to traditional gold.
They measure 1 3/8"H x 1/2"W with a 1/2" drop.
