Sparrow Claw Earrings
This finish has a dark grey hue and is fully oxidised with liver of sulphur that will rub away over time to an antique finish with wear (you can maintain oxidisation with a few tools, check here) Here are some examples of this finish;
This finish has been oxidised, but most of the oxidisation has been rubbed away so that the silver (or bronze) shows through and the crevices have an antique time worn look to them. The metal isn't shiny but has a matte feel. It will slowly shine up over time with wear. Here are some examples of antique matte finish;
Like antique matte, the piece has been oxidised, and rubbed away to have an antique like finish, but this option has a shiny finish rather than matte, and the silver (of bronze) shines through just a bit more. Here are some examples of antique polished jewellery;
Bright Silver Polished:
This finish has no oxidisation, and has been polished to a bright white silver shine (or bronze/gold depending on your custom metal choice).
Although this option isn't usually available in my listings, if you ask for it I am happy to do it on nearly any of my items.
These earrings are lovingly cast from two beautiful and detailed Bird claws (From a found sparrow that flew in to a window). They are cast in Sterling silver and can have either an Oxidised, Antique Matte or antique Polished finish. These earrings are very dark, but in a sense they are also incredibly delicate and beautiful. A celebration of this beautiful animal.
The claws are 2 inches long and look stunning on.
As these are made to order, please allow me me 1-3 weeks to make and send these earrings.
The earrings come in a luxurious LSD gift box
these have very quickly become my favorite earrings. so so worth the splurge for me. the detail is absolutely fascinating, impeccable even, and as someone who has cared for and adored birds my entire life these earrings are a gorgeous homage to such beautiful creatures. charlotte so clearly puts her entire heart into her work, and was lovely in communication with me about my order. i also cannot thank her enough for my gift, a gorgeous talon keychain that has a forever spot on my keys. i am and will continue to be a repeat customer, thank you so much for your art <3
