These earrings are made using an extensive process called Patina which oxidizes metal with time. 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 top circle is brass, the Patina circle is copper, and the ear hook is Gold Fill. They are about 2 inches in length. These earrings are named after the beautiful city of Athens, Greece. Carlie was lucky enough to visit Athens and discovered the Freddo Coffees (the best Iced Espresso Drink) and view the Parthenon and other ancient ruins. It's truly a city of wonder and so are these earrings! The blues and turquoise in these earrings are similar to the coloring of the Aegean Sea, surrounding Athens.
