Crescent Verdigris Earrings

Crescent verdigris earrings with sterling silver diamond cut out.  These earrings are inspired by the moon and its effects of the ocean.  ​

These earrings are patinad to create an aged and antique color.  
I hand cut the crescent shapes- (approximate dimensions of 2" wide and 3 1/4" long with earwires) -from copper sheet metal and add the sterling silver wire that they hang from.  
I then form the diamond shape from sterling silver rectangular wire.  Once soldered in place I create the negative space in the diamond by hand sawing out the copper.
