Oxidation. It’s a beautiful thing. We didn’t need that stinkin’ electron anyhow. And now we have a new substance. That’s what’s happened with the brass charms on these earrings. They’ve been intentionally oxidized. With this form of corrosion, the brass gains a thin film of copper oxide along the exposed surfaces. It gives them a dark, matte finish that’s really subtle. And, of course, you couldn’t have bright sterling silver ear wires against that, so the jeweler chose to tarnish them. The result is a science-experiment you can safely hang from your ear.
The charms on these Star Wars Logo Earrings each measure approximately 1/2″ in diameter. From the top of the wire to the bottom of the charm measures 1″. Comes in a silk bag too.
Available HERE for $24.99.
