These earrings are made using an extensive process called Patina which oxidizes metal with time. These pieces are made with hand cut copper. Please note that each piece will be unique in its coloring which is why Patina is magical! No two pieces will ever be exact. There is a protective sealant to maintain the vibrancy but please know that with time and exposure to the elements, patina will continue to change and age the metal and the less you touch the Patina, the longer it will last.
The ear hook is gold. This pair of earrings is named after Melbourne, Australia. Carlie planned on backpacking around Australia for 4 months and ended up staying an entire year! Melbourne holds a very special place in my heart, and I ended up spending most of my time there. From the people, colors, and the beautiful city built along the Yarra River to the magnificent Great Ocean Road... these earrings are a salute to the wonderful city of Melbourne!
