Gold Hoop Earrings with Pyrite Mixed Metals Coiled Silver
Gold Hoop Chandelier Earrings Wire Wrapped Pyrite Gemstones Mixed Metal Black Gold Oxidized Silver Gold Statement Earrings Wife Gift for Her
14 kt gold filled hoop earrings are wire wrapped with gemstones of mystic spinel, natural pyrite, mystic black spinel and silver pyrite to create these unique, handmade hoop statement earrings.
Hand forged by me from 14 kt gold filled wires, these hoops are wire wrapped to add 14 kt gold filled chain along the bottom. Oxidized silver coils intersperse the gold filled wires. The earrings are centered by mystic spinel briolettes, 12 mm on the bottoms and by silver pyrite 11 mm in the centers.
The bottom briolette stones are flanked by faceted rounds of mystic black spinel dangling in between and faceted pyrite briolettes, 7mm, to add more magic to the mix.
The gemstones are all wire wrapped with yards of 14kt gold filled and oxidized sterling wires, and the rondelles are mounted on sterling silver ball headpins.
These gleaming mixed metal earrings are so pretty with their reflective surfaces and textures. The play of light and dark of the stunning gemstones cannot be captured in pictures.
The last two photos posted are of a pair I sold years ago. I was inspired to make these again because of the metallics of fall fashion this year and the burnout velvets in animal prints.
Total length of earrings, including the oxidized sterling silver ear wires, is 2 7/8 inches long.
Hoops are 1 1/2 inches at their widest point.
