I felt a spectacular shred of stardom when a pair of metalwork dangle earrings by Lisa Burek Jewelry arrived unexpectedly at my door. She created several variations of the design especially for celebrities to receive at the 2013 GBK Golden Globes! Mine are crafted completely of antique brass, but she can custom make them with any combination of copper and silver, too, as shown to the right.
Each strip of metal is hand hammered, oxidized for patina and sealed with a protective wax. They're entwined around metal circles and measure approximately 2 inches from the top of the earwire. Use coupon code "LBJ15" during checkout to receive 15% off hammered metal earrings or anything else in her handmade shop.
Disclaimer: I received these free earrings as a thank you gift for hosting a jewelry giveaway. If you think your handmade creations would harmonize with my whimsical ramblings, learn how to sponsor a giveaway here.
