Hammered solid sterling silver protest earrings with RESIST on one and PERSIST on the other. Each heart is apx 20 mm. Each pair of earrings is an individual work of art and will have slight variations due to the nature of such a handmade item.
The ear wires are solid silver as well; They're shaped, hammered to flatten the arc at top, then tumbled in steel shot to harden for several hours, then oxidized to black in a liver of sulfur solution and buffed out with steel wool and polished. Solid .925 silver

The hearts are hammered with a ball peen hammer from the back to create a slight doming effect, as can be noted in the detail images. This is done both for aesthetics as well as durability and strength. The metal is solid raw copper, and each piece is oxidized and polished out to a rustic satin patina. The tools used to work the patterns into this copper are antique and unique. You won't find another piece anywhere else like this. Your made-to-order item will come in a complimentary custom-made gift box as shown in the images above.
For those who might have metal allergies, hypo-allergenic niobium earwires are available upon request for no extra charge.
