Free form teardrop shapes have been cut out of brass, flattened, then hammered to form these elegant earrings. The earrings curve inward to add to the organic element of these earrings. They are very light, not at all heavy and measure about 2 1/2" in total length (including ear hoop) and about 2" wide at the widest section of the earring. The ear hoops are gold plated. These earrings are a great modern day ancient look.
