These earrings are completely handcrafted using Sterling Silver-filled* wire and Czech glass beads. Part of my Minimalist Collection, they are lightweight, comfortable, and versatile enough to wear day to evening. *1/10 SILVER FILLED WIRE (this is NOT Silver Plated) Silver-filled wire is non-allergenic, like sterling silver. This high quality 1/10 silver-filled wire has a red brass alloy core which is bonded in a thick (10%) sterling silver layer that won't wear, flake or peel. A great alternative to Sterling Silver at an affordable price. All my jewelry is hand forged, tumbled for extra strength, and hand polished. Oxidized pieces receive an additional tumble and hand polishing to highlight the details brought out by the patina. Copper jewelry is sealed to preserve the antiqued finish. Every piece of jewelry I create is part of my heart - made with love, and attention to detail, here in my home studio. I want you to love your jewelry as much as I loved making it. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions. The piece pictured is the one you will receive. I do my best to take accurate photos that are true to color using natural light. Colors will vary slightly from one computer monitor to another. ♥ Jewelry is packaged together and sealed in a poly-zip bag with an anti-tarnish tab – care tips included.

An occasional wipe with a dry jewelry cloth is all that's needed to keep your jewelry looking its best. Do not use any strong cleaning or polishing solutions because they could damage the finish. Remove jewelry before bathing/swimming and minimize contact with chemicals like hairspray, perfumes, lotions, household cleaning supplies, or chlorine. It is best to store it inside the air-tight bag with anti-tarnish strip provided with your purchase.
