Created as an experiment with the "marriage of metals" technique, these brass, bronze and copper striped weirdos are full of fun and movement. The bales and ear wires are sterling silver, because all the metals wanted to come to the weirdo party!
copper, bronze, brass, sterling silver ear wires
The secret sterling silver, bronze and brass don't want you to know is that they all contain copper! Sterling has only a little copper in it, to make it tougher than it would be alone. Bronze is nearly all copper, with just 12% tin added in. And brass, with it's yellow shininess, is roughly 30% zinc and the rest is - you guessed it - copper! Alloys are the best!
