Mariah’s copper verdigris earrings are made of hand-sawn copper in Mariah’s original design. They are textured and shaped by hand, colored with wax pigment, and protected with 2 coats of lacquer. The ear wires are hand-cut and formed sterling silver. The shield part of the earring is 1 5/8” wide, 1 1/8 inch in height. The ear wire adds another ½” to the height. These earrings are lightweight yet stay securely in the ear due to the length of the ear wires. These shield-shaped earrings have a mottled patina finish intended to look like aged copper.
