What is it about the combination of copper and turquoise that is so eye catching? These hand hammered, copper, 16 gauge, wire earrings seem to do just that. When I finished these earrings , I had a hard time deciding whether or not to antique them because the turquoise ceramic rounds looked so pretty on bright shiny copper. I decided that antiquing them would give a richer look and contrast just as nicely with the turquoise. Hope you like the results!
