Rustic Vintage Brass Doorknocker Earrings
I found these ornate brass doodads at a vintage market. A woman was selling boxes upon boxes of old jewelry components from a now defunct jewelry manufacturer in Rhode Island. I soldered them to brass discs and then "grunged" them up in liver of sulphur. I then polished most of the surface, but left behind some of the darker areas to give the earrings a beautiful patina and to add dimension. Brass ear hooks. Total length is 2 1/2".
