These graceful tendril earrings are the latest addition to my "Tendrils of the Vine" Collection, inspired by the amazing wines of Washington state. My inspiration started with local winery and restaurant near to where I live (the restaurant name is Tendrils). Every time I traveled by the exit for the winery and restaurant I found myself looking at the signs and thinking, "Someone needs to design a jewelry line inspired by that name and theme to honor Washington wines!" Then a friend of mine had me try the wine from that specific winery.... Afterward, I was even more convinced that I needed to give in to my muse and create some wine-inspired jewelry. So, this is one of many beautiful pieces to come inspired by the Washington wines I love and- of course- the specific winery near me which, with its restaurant's name, inspired my specific design theme. These earrings feature a single piece of 20g wire, carefully twisted and connected into dangles with handmade leaves and vine tendrils. The earring hooks, also handmade and work-hardened, are of 22g wire. Brass and copper do, of course, over time develop an attractive patina. This is part of the beauty of the material. This item receives only a light polishing; the handmade look and hammer marks are preserved for effect. A Butterfly Sundries' original design, you won't find these elsewhere. From beginning to end, this item is handmade with love... and all the attention you deserve! These earrings measure at about 1.75 inches from the base of the handmade earring hook. This item comes with a FREE white gift box, for your gift-giving pleasure. As always, 10% of the profits from the sale of this item goes to support my Featured Charity!
