Claw dangle earrings with gemstone bead
These are a pair of handmade claw earrings, available in both sterling silver and antique bronze (90% copper & 10% tin), with a choice of 5mm gemstone spheres you to choose from. the ear hooks are made in sterling silver or bronze, and are very solid. They are 16mm long and 8mm wide. The claws hold the spheres in place without any glue required and look like either eagle claws or asian style dragon claws. I fine everyone sees it differently, so I tend to leave it to your own interpretation! Also if you feel like mixing and matching the stones, feel free to ask!
Bronze is an alloy that consists of a mixture of approximately 90% copper and 10% tin. Producing bronze is a less toxic process than producing brass as brass is a combination of copper and zinc, and the manufacturing process often produces zinc oxide which is toxic. Because bronze contains copper, it can turn your skin green whether you have an allergy or not. Bronze and copper turn your skin green because when the copper reacts with your sweat and the acids from your skin, it produces copper chloride. Copper chloride is a green substance that then rubs off on your skin. If you are prone to sweating, your bronze jewelry will definitely turn your skin green. This chemical reaction can also be prevented by painting any part of the jewelry that comes in contact with your skin with clear nail polish or clear acrylic enamel.
The inspiration comes from my claw pendants, and are perfect to add that special something for any occasion, whether be to the office or to a fantasy LARP!
