The Saddle Blanket Earrings
This listing is for a MADE TO ORDER pair of The Saddle Blanket earrings.
These photos were taken of a previous pair of these earrings I made, the pair you will purchase will look nearly identical, but all pieces due to hand stamping and patina will have slight variations and are one of a kind.
Each pair of earrings is comprised of two hand cut copper triangles, linked together to form a diamond, with another diamond cut out of the center. By being linked together with hand formed copper jump rings, they have a wonderful dance dangling upon your ear as you move. Edging the diamonds is a pattern stamped from an authentic handmade Navajo stamp, one I feel so fortunate to have in my tool box. I do not take lightly the work of the craftsmen who made this such an inspiring trade. They were then given a patina to give them a high contrast, antiqued look, and then given a wax coating, with lavender oil, to help keep their patina in place.
These earrings have been given a patina for contrast, but as they are worn, it will grow with you. Your oils and the environment you subject them too will give them their own natural, ever changing patina. They will become an extension of you as they travels with you on your path.
DetailsBecause every piece is made by hand expect slight variations in stamping and patina, as well as size, although they stay pretty true to these measurements…
They measure 2 3/4" from the top of one triangle to the bottom of the other and 1 1/4" at the widest part across.
They can be hung from hand formed 18g copper wire findings, that can fit both regular pierced ears as well as through gauged tunnels, standard size copper earring findings (nickel free), or sterling silver earrings findings. Please specify at checkout.
Also, these earrings can be made in brass, or sterling silver (with a surcharge reflecting metal costs) upon request.
Because this piece is made to order, please allow up to 6 weeks for delivery. I strive to get custom order finished within a week, but if I need to order more metals, it may take as long as 6 weeks as it will be out of my control - I will let you know what I estimate, and if it is time sensitive feel free to ask ahead of time!
