("Thyra" by Handmaden Designs LLC)

These beautiful asymmetrical earrings are made from sterling silver, copper, and Brecciated Jasper combining both chainmaille and metalsmithing.  The copper sheet has been hand-embossed and then patinaed using a torch.  A copper has been clear coated with a sealant to ensure the longterm durability of the patina. The chainwork on the earrings combines regualr chainwork, Mobius balls, an Alternating Half-Romanov.  They measure at about 2.25 inches long.

Alternating Half-Romanov is an original design by Handmaden Designs LLC.
