These large Victorian style filigrees begin as raw brass. I achieve the shades of greyish pink by an intricate combination of natural patina processes and the application of layer upon layer of pigments, which become part of the patina. Once colored, I carefully distress the surface to reveal the brass beneath, to give them the look of a long-lost antique. Dimensions and details: - From the top of the ear wires to the bottom of the earrings, they measure approximately 2.75 inches (70mm). - The patina process takes several days, so please check the ship-by date as I will need production time if I do not have a pair already finished and ready to ship. - Both the front and back of the filigree have the patina. - Filigree is raw brass, lead-free and nickel-free, made in the USA - Ear wires are antiqued brass, lead-free and nickel-free - Filigree is sealed with a satin lacquer to protect the distressed patina. - Filigree is heavily distressed for a very antique look (please use the zoom feature to see the filigree in more detail). If you would prefer a "newer" look or even a different color, I would be happy to create a special pair, please send me a message to discuss.
