Bold crescents of solid brass hang asymmetrically and definitely make a statement.
These earrings are originally carved in very thin wax and cast in solid brass. Since they are cast, (as opposed to cut from sheet) they have a stronger presence and a much more detailed finish. The posts are made from sterling silver wire and the brass is brushed to a satin finish with the details preserved.
We also have these earrings in multiple sizes so you can find the perfect pair! Measurements are below:
Small: .5" x .75
Medium: .5" x .1
Large: .75" x 1.5"
Extra Large: 1" x 1.75"
Over time, the brass will age, developing a beautiful patina. This is one of my favorite properties of brass: old and worn, with a natural finish that can only come from being handled. Smooth, but not too glossy; shiny but not too bright. This is why we love brass! Since the posts are sterling silver, they won't irritate your ears the same way base metal posts will. If you would like the entire earring in sterling silver, we are happy to make that happen too! DM us for sterling costs.
Please see additional photos for size reference, and please let us know if you have any questions!
If you want both earrings to face the same direction, we are happy to send you a matching pair! :) Just leave a note in the comments of your order.
