Amethyst Earrings, Copper Wire, Wrapped, Half Circle, Arch Earrings, Minimalist, Primitive, Torc, Gemstone Jewelry, 906
Gorgeous and simple Amethyst earrings wire wrapped with copper wire formed into half circle or arch shapes. They drop about 1 3/4 inches from the top of the ear wire and are set with copper ear wires. I made these minimalist earrings by forming 16 gauge copper wire into the half circle shapes. Then I hammered the wire flat and then polished it to give it a shine. Then I wire wrapped 12 x 9 mm faceted Amethyst beads in the center with 26 gauge wire and wrapped 3 mm Copper bead with a loop at the top. The ear wires are made with 20 gauge Copper wire that has been work hardened. They are sort of simple, primitive. They could Etruscan, Egyptian or Celtic! I like the style, so I think I'll make some in silver. They will be shipped in a jewelry gift box. Thank you.
