I love autumn and the changing leaves. It makes me love crisp afternoons in my backyard when I can watch the leaves falling from the trees while enjoying a mug of hot chocolate. Invariably, I find myself finding excuses to make road trips across the Cascade Mountains so I can enjoy the gorgeous colors of the changing trees; these trips almost always result in me finding a place to park with my sketchbook or camera in hand to capture the inspiration which always comes.
Made from copper or brass sheet metal, each of these autumn leaf earrings are individually cut, hammered, shaped and formed. No two are ever exactly identical. Antiqued to bring out the beauty revealed by their ordeal, holes were drilled to allow them to be worn, and then they were polished. Hanging on handmade earring hooks made of 22g wire, every portion of these earrings show artisan craftsmanship.
Added bonus? You never have to worry about raking these autumn leaves and they’ll provide you with years of enjoyment!
Copper and brass do, of course, over time develop an attractive patina. This is part of the beauty of the materials. The earrings do have a thin protective layer of wax to protect them, but expect the beautiful patina to gradually appear.
From beginning to end, this item is handmade with love… with all the attention you deserve!
