Rustic Copper and Gemstone Earrings with Red Agate Teardrops
For a woman who loves boho fashion, deep rich colors and eclectic long earrings, Mollie Meserve's handmade copper and stone design will have instant appeal.
• To form a complementary backdrop for rusty russet orange agate tear drop shaped stones, Mollie created long rectangles, rough cut by hand from upcycled industrial sheet metal, hammered them to achieve a weathered look and texture and gave them the colorful palette and glowing patina of flame washed copper. • Colors range from burnt orange to shades of gold and pink, with glimpses of silvery violet.
• The warm earth tone gemstones, crowned with dainty accent beads of bright copper, drop from small rings in front of the rectangles, and the entire dangle structures swing and sway below Mollie's large open hoop ear wires, hand formed and hammered for additional interest.
