Metal Minerals Blue / Brass Teardrop Earrings
These special earrings are from my Metal Minerals Collection. The striking blue-green faceted teardrop is cast in solid brass from a hand-carved wax and hangs from a 14/20 gold-filled ear wire. The unique blue-green patina is achieved by a chemical treatment process and is sealed with wax to preserve it's color and to protect the surface with a durable satin finish.
Please note: The patina is unique to each process, please expect variation from piece to piece. Listing photo is representative of the item you will receive.
Measurements: 1" x .5"
What does 'GOLD-FILLED' mean?
-Gold-filled, or gold overlay, is made by heat- and pressure-bonding a thin layer of 14K gold to a brass core.
-Karat gold covers the brass surface, making it tarnish-resistant.
-The value of gold-filled is greater than gold-plated because gold-filled has an actual layer of karat gold, not just a microscopic film.
