Description

Ready to Ship!Materials: cotton thread, Chinese coin, niobium ear wire, Czech glass, copper wire, artist (coated) wire.Dimensions: 3" from top of ear wire. Ear wire is 3/4" tall. ~2" wide at center.......................................................................At the center of these statement earrings is an older style Chinese coin. The coin is only slightly visible at the back as the crochet loops surround the coin. I stitched on irridenscent Czech glass drops and faceted beads along the edge. Note the contrasting brighter purple along the top. Also note that the coin adds a little weight to these. I might not call these "ear weights" but they are NOT lightweight.For the ear wire I formed a small hoop out of niobium wire which is chosen for its hypoallergenic properties, lightweight nature, and resistance to corrosion.These earrings were inspired by the Siouxsie and the Banshees album Juju. In addition the coins used at the base of these earrings are often seen as good luck talisman. Check out the wikipedia article on Chinese numismatic charms if you are curious. Hopefully these help you with your own good juju.***This pair was a bit of a prototype of this design and have subtle visible variances in addition to quirks in how the beads along the edge lay. This is reflected in the price........................................................................Though I take care to make my work to last, do not swim or shower with these on. Avoid contact with hairsprays, oils, or lotions as the fabric could stain just like any other. My wire work is wrapped carefully, but be mindful not to crush or bend.Color can appear slightly different due to lighting conditions or monitor settings. Items may appear larger or smaller in some cases, so please check measurements. Natural variations are the nature of stones, fiber, and handmade creations in general. Please feel free to message me with any inquiries........................................................................Note: all items created in my home studio in the company of four felines. Though they are not an active part of the creation of these, there may be a little "cat magic" that makes its way into my work. If you have allergies you may want to take that into consideration with any fiber pieces........................................................................Returns are not accepted. Please contact me with any questions or concerns before purchase., purple
