Willow Earrings

Willow Earrings with Dark Patina
Willow Earrings in Golden Bronze

These earrings have the willow leaf shape and are cut out from flat sheets of bronze.  After series of hammering and annealing, they are shaped into these swirling leaves.  Quite time-consuming to make but well worth it.  The curves lines have a lot of visual movement.  They are available in golden bronze or a darkened bronze.  The darker version has burnished edges and spine (back side) for a very dramatic contrast so you can really see the curving lines.  Holes are then drilled and ear wires attached.  I hope you like them as much as I do.
