Black Death 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.
From my Black Plague inspired "Black Death" Collection, comes these Haunting earrings. They feature the spinal column of a Rat - immortalised forever in Sterling Silver, Holding a Rose cut Gemstone (Labradorite, Moonstone, Dark Grey Moonstone, Onyx, Hessonite Garnet or Tourmalinated Quartz). The earrings are oxidised to a ghoulish dark grey that will wear away to shiny antiqued silver over time.
These earrings have a matching Pendant version (The pendant versions are shown in some photos to show you the different stone choices)
Each Earring Measures Roughly 1 3/4 Inches in length including the Jump ring.
Each piece is made to order so please allow me 1-3 weeks to create and send this item.
I had to also pick up the matching pendant for the Black death. Together, the pieces are absolutely striking. Charlotte as usual did an amazing job and helped me pick up the perfect stone. I had so many questions and she answered each one with patience, kindness and expertise. I highly recommend this piece in particular. Its a perfect everyday piece for gothic lovers. This is such a unique design that so far everyone has loved when I showed them my Black Death Pendant set.
I can't recommend Charlotte enough. As an artist and a person, she goes above and beyond for anyone who purchases her art. She was incredibly patient with me in finding the perfect stones. I went with oxidized and moonstone and its the perfect gothic stained glass window vibes. I do recommend oxidizing if you do moonstone as it helps the stones pop out more, I didn't love the polished look but its up to each individual preference. These earrings are a good medium size. Not too heavy, too small or too big. You can measure on a ruler to see the approximate size.
I was very excited about this pair of earrings and Im thrilled!!
It really exceeded my expectations
They are incredibly unique and Im wearing them ever since getting them…
Very much excited about charlottes works
