Women's red Jade and copper dangle - drop earrings are very unique. They were constructed with 14 gauge copper wire that has been shaped into an interesting free form swirl design. Each earring has two 6 mm red Jade beads which have been wire wrapped into a unique design. They hang from a 20 gauge, French style earring wire. The overall measurement is 2" long. They have been lightly antiqued so it brings out more of the goldish color of the copper rather than the heavier brown antiqued look.
All of my pieces are cut, shaped, sanded and polished individually so there may be slight variations in sizes and shading of antiquing.
Your jewelry will come in an organza drawstring pouch, ready for gift giving.
