This earrings have been mounted on Sterling Silver post and butterfly earring fittings. These have been oxidised to bring out the high's and lows of the design then polished to a high shine they have then been coated with a light wax.
Copper is a traditional Anniversary gift in the UK for 7 years of marriage. As with all Copper over time it will take on a natural patina which adds to it's charm, however if you want to bring it back to it's original shine and colour, any commercially available metal polish will work.
All my jewellery is hand made in my little workshop, I use traditional hand tools to make, stamp & texture my jewellery. As everything is made by hand and to order nothing is mass produced no two will ever be identical.
Hand stamped items are done by stamping each letter individually using hand stamps and a hammer as such the alignment of the letters will not be perfect this gives the item charm and character, hand stamping gives a nice deep impression.
