White bronze beech style contoured leaf earrings on scrolled Sterling silver earwires.  The leaves featured in these earrings have been made by me in a white bronze metal clay and have been contoured and shaped individually to a natural shape

The white bronze used for these leaves is called Antarctic Moonlight, which comes out, for me, in this lovely delicate Champagne colour.  I have paired the earrings with polished Sterling silver feature earwires.

The earrings hang 35mm (1.4") overall from the top of the earwires and are 13mm (½") at their widest.  The earwires feature hammered scrolls and deep teardrop hanging loops to allow the earring pieces to swing freely.  Please note that this design of earwire uses slightly heavier wire than I usually use, if you have sensitive piercings.

What is metal clay?

Metal clay (now available in base metals like copper, bronze, iron, steel and brass and precious metals like silver and even gold) is a clay like medium made from tiny particles of metal, combined with an organic binder and made into a pliable clay or paste with water. After working with the clay-like medium to form the article, it is thoroughly dried to remove all of the water, the shape is further refined and then fired at very high temperature in a kiln to both burn off the binders and to cause the metal particles to fuse together as solid metal - this firing takes a full day to complete - at which time I tend to work with crossed fingers, hoping that the kiln gods are smiling on me that day and it fires successfully.   Not everything does.
