These earrings are a custom order for a lovely young woman I will be telling you about soon on my blog. They are a kind of combination of some washer and bar earrings I have done before--my customer thought the washers would be nice combined with a longer element--I think she was right! The washers have been textured with a 1959 British half crown coin, and the bars were created from two short lengths of 14 gauge copper wire. I left the bars a little brighter than the washers so they would flash in the light.
The washers are about as big around as a quarter, but not terribly heavy.
