Finally found a batch of Canadian copper penny’s again and have been hand fashioning them into earrings. Fun Canadiana gift item, especially for birthday years.
The ear wires are super comfortable, made out of Argentium® Silver with a touch of germanium and is closer to fine silver than traditional sterling. Best of all, it resists tarnishing and keeps on shining. 19.6mm and wire is .036”
Please note, I make these individually, they all look different so not exactly like photo. It takes up to 3 business days.
You can order rubber earring stoppers, pack of 10 is $5.00
