Seashell Earrings

I have collected seashells my whole life - and I love all things "shell."

These earrings were so simple, but I just love them:
After cutting discs out of sheet copper, I stamped the discs with a scallop design and etched them. I love how the stamp has a very vintage, deeply textural appearance, and I also really like how the surrounding copper took on some very distressed-looking stripes in the acid. Every piece behaves differently in the acid, so it's always fun to see what you have when you take the pieces out and clean them up!

I drilled holes for the earwires, and that's it! Seashell earrings!

I'm interested in buying two pairs depending on the price and of course, if they're available.

Do you have any other scallop jewelry?
