Autumn Leaves 10 Gauge Mixed Metal Ear Weights with Amber
These 10 gauge autumn earrings were inspired by the changing of the seasons and the beautiful array of colors nature produces during its release. They are a wearable reminder of that release; just like the dazzling colors of autumn, release is a beautiful and magical event.
The ear weights feature the leaves of red oak, gamble oak, red maple, sycamore, coast live oak, ash, California black oak, horse chestnut, sweet gum, and common oak.
Each leaf was carefully drawn onto sheet metal then cut out with a jewelers saw by hand. Several different techniques were used to give the leaves a life like texture. Very carefully each leaf was soldered into place after they were individually formed. A tiny ball burr was used to add the ground texture into the background. After the earrings were assembled and sanded they were given a soft brown patina. Amber cabochons were then set into custom made fine and sterling silver settings. Lastly the earrings were finished to a satin polish.
The earrings measure approximately 3" from the top of the 10 gauge wire to the base of the earrings and just over 2.5" at their widest point. They are 10 gauge ear weights and are suitable for anyone with lobes stretched to 10g or larger. Each earring weights 36 grams which is just over the weight of 6 US quarters. These earrings are not suitable for those highly sensitive to weight.
