Sunday Studio: Silver and Copper Art Deco Earrings

This week I whipped up some Art Deco style earrings.

The half moons are recycled from a copper and fine silver dome that I cut in half, then carved a pair of stars and brushed to a satin finish [above] then polished to soften the finish [below].

The hammered sterling silver earring bodies are recycled, having originally been part of a bracelet my sister made many years ago.

At 6.5cm they’re a nice length, elegant against the neck and superb with a 20s-style bob haircut.
