18 gauge sterling silver sheet riveted with square 16 gauge brass wire and a bark texture hammered in. A couple loved a copper ring I created a while back and then requested 2 in silver with the brass. Love the look :)
I did not realize it but, it does mimic my ear.
After I got my hair chopped, I made my hammered swirl earrings extra large.
I love these and wear them all the time!
Using 16 gauge adds a nice heft......
