These handcrafted branch coral earrings were cast from a natural piece of coral and hang on handcrafted 14k gold filled French style ear wires.
Coral pieces have the kiln patina - matte/brushed - brighter gold tone.
Each bronze piece is made by hand by pressing with bronze metal clay into a mold and the clay is then dried, and sanded by hand, kiln fired and finished to this beautiful and unique solid bronze piece of jewelry. Variations are to be expected and enjoyed!
*14K gold-filled is an actual layer of 14 carat gold - pressure bonded onto a base metal. It is not gold-plate - it has more gold than gold-plating, will not flake off and is far more valuable and tarnish resistant.
*Bronze is composed of 90% copper and 10% tin and is nickel free.
The bronze pieces are left natural and un-lacquered and will naturally patina and darken over time adding to the character of your piece!
