Dragonfly Earrings with Turquoise in Sterling Silver
These darling sterling silver dragonflies have been formed by cutting out the shape from a pancake die in a hydraulic press. Various stamps have been used by hand to give a very southwest vibe. Each dragonfly has been backed with copper sheet. A 6mm turquoise cab rests in the center of both. All the silver has been oxidized (blackened) in liver of sulphur, sanded to bring out the highlights of the silver, & then tumbled in steel shot to make it shine. Handmade sterling silver earwires. 2" long from earlobe, and 1 1/2" wide. Lightweight.
