teardrop earrings - green Japanese blossoms
fashion earrings made in nz in a variety of custom colors. The classic teardrop earring is such an easy shape to wear for years to come! I've been making this style (in varying colors) for over 10 years now! These lovely teardrops are the most popular in my range. They are hand fabricated (soldered) by me from brass that has been darkened to an antique finish. They hang from brass ear hooks but (darkened) sterling silver earwires can be swapped out for a minor fee.
This is such a pretty Japanese print paper with the white blossoms on the deep green.
The teardrop measures 18mm x 13mm and features a handmade glass image stone made by underlaying beautiful Japanese paper underneath a clear glass dome. I've perfected this technique over the years and ensure a lovely placement - although each pair will vary slightly.
They are then set into the brass teardrop which has undergone some love - I've soldered on the loop which has been handcut, it is then pickled, tumbled to a polish and then dipped in liver of sulpher to patina / darken.
The last picture on the model is for size reference only as it does display this pair of earrings.
