Copper Earrings with Flower Texture Petal Drops

Copper Earrings with Flower Texture Petal Drops

Artisan hand crafted drop charms in copper with a cute swirly pattern hanging from copper sleeper hoops.

The hoops are very comfortable and secure to wear and have been oxidised and polished to a high shine. The terracotta colour of the metal goes with lots of outfits and are my favourite to wear on an autumn day. The hoops have a simple closing mechanism and are light and easy to wear. They have been given a protective coating.

Note that the drops are cut from a textured sheet and will have variation from drop to drop. Some have a huge flower, others elaborate leaf clusters.
The hoops are 16 mm in diameter and the whole earring hangs 28 mm - that's just over 1 inch.

* copper hoops 16 mm outside diameter, 0.8 mm thick wire (20 gauge)
* copper petal drops 11 by 15 mm

Will arrive ready gift-wrapped in a cute little ribboned box.

These hoops have been given a protective coating - this both preserves their colour and goes some way to shield your skin from the copper. With use this coating will wear off.

So will copper turn my skin green?
Could be. Each person's skin reacts to copper in different ways. For some people it will turn your skin green when worn but for some it doesn't. There is no way to know if it will happen to you other than trying it out. If your skin does have a reaction to the copper the green mark will usually disappear overnight (if the earring is removed) or will easily wash away with soap and water.

The green is harmless and some people even say that wearing copper is good for you.

If you want to try to prevent the earring from turning your piercing green you can apply clear nail polish to the hoops. The nail polish coating will prevent the ring's metal alloys from coming in contact with your skin and prevent your piercing from turning green. The clear polish will eventually wear off and when it does just add another application of the nail polish.
