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.
The earrings have beautiful tear shaped rose cut gemstones (you can choose from rainbow Moonstone, labradorite, onyx or hessonite garnet) set in a delectably dark bezel and grasped by a tiny bird claw. It can have either an Oxidised finish an antique Matte, or an antique polished finish. (The last two photos show it in necklace form but show garnet and onyx stone choices )
The teardrop is approximately 2cm tall, 1.5cm wide
The earrings you receive will be slightly different from the picture as each gemstone is different and has its own personality. I always choose the best quality stone I can for each piece I make.
Please note this is made to order so will take between 1-3 weeks for me to make and send.
More wonderful jewels from LSD. I love them! The labradorites are fabulous - lots of blue green from every angle, huge and juicy! The claws are so delicate looking, and so detailed! The proportions between stone, claw and bezel are just right, and the simple French hooks vanish when worn, so it’s like they hang from my ears by magick. Thank you! I’m proud to wear such lovely pieces.
This is simply beautiful. I love it
Even more beautiful in person!
