Alpenglow Amber 12g Hangers
There is a time that I treasure while camping in the Sierra that happens after the sun has set. Just before the stars begin to appear, all of the mountains and trees have a soft warm light illuminating them. This optical phenomenon is called alpenglow and it is the inspiration behind these unique earrings. These amber stones mimic the glowing light that blankets the wilderness before the night takes over.
These earrings are entirely hand fabricated from sterling silver sheet metal and wire. The landscapes are made of multiple layers that were each cut out with a handheld jewelers saw, one tree and mountain at a time. Each layer was textured using a variety of different methods and then carefully shaped to fit within the frames before being soldered in place. A patina has been added to bring out all of the details of this intricate landscape.
Each earring measures approximately 1.14" x 3.34" including the ear wire and weigh 18 grams (.63oz). The ear wires are 12 gauge sterling silver for stretched earlobe piercings.
These earrings can have custom ear wires or hoops made for them. Please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
