LIMITED BATCH! ONLY A FEW PAIRS AVAILABLE! "Keyhole" Mezzaluna Earrings with COPPER BLADES!
Dramatic and modern yet they have an ethnic and tribal feel. While we regularly have these available with Brass or Silver hammered blades, we've just made a few pairs with our torch-fired copper pieces to go with the Autumnal vibes we're feelin'!
I kept seeing this shape, this circle and swoop everywhere. It’s a shape many of us have seen (one friend sketched it for a woven purse and another had a similar design sideways on some pottery), but what did it mean?? It’s similar to many designs I’ve always made, circles and crescents but there’s a FIERCENESS too it. These designs are still soft and round but sharp, they have more EDGE. They’re a little more dangerous, even weapon like.... They reminded me of a knife that looks like this. I searched online for “rocking herb knife” and came to find out that they’re called Mezzaluna knives. The word is Italian for Crescent Moon. Ahhh.
Small, Oxidized Sterling Silver hoops and hammered, torch-fire-patinated and sealed COPPER Blades, with Sterling Silver earwires.
Small Sterling Silver Hoop is 1 3/8" diameter and these hang 2 5/8" long from earwires to the bottoms of the blades.
