These weights were born from experimentation, attention to detail and love of working with metal. Every aspect of these over sized statement weights is packed with texture and detail.
After forming the main hoop the mountains, trees and grass were drawn onto sterling silver sheet metal. Each wolf was then drawn and cut out in three separate layers and soldered together. Detail and texture was then added in multiple steps with a variety of hammers and burrs. The mountains of the weights are formed out from the backing adding dimension and depth to this nighttime forest scene. A fine silver moon was gold leafed with a technique called Keum Boo. The weights were then finished off with a black patina and meticulously polished to highlight the texture and details. Finally stars are added one by one with a tiny burr. The backs are finished to a bright silver satin polish.
The Long Night 12 gauge ear weights measure 2.5" across and 4 3/8" from the top of the ear wire to the base of the earrings. Each side weights approximately 24 grams- about the weight of 8 US quarters. The ear wires are made from 12 gauge sterling silver and have a locking style closure to ensure the earrings stay on securely.
