Patinaed Earrings


Our patinaed geometric earrings are made in constantly changing designs, and sold in assortments. No two assortments will ever be the same. Single-drop earrings are patinaed brass or flame-treated copper. Double-drop earrings have one patinaed piece and one polished brass piece. The earwires are gold-filled.

(On occasion we make double-drop earrings with a polished nickel piece in place of the brass; in this case, the earwires are surgical steel.)

Single Drop Earrings

Single drop earrings are our newest item. They are available to shops and galleries in assortments only. Each earring consists of a single piece of patinaed brass or flame-treated copper, and a gold-filled earwire. They are extremely colorful, and we choose our assortments carefully for maximum variety and interest. We make the earrings in very small batches, and choose each assortment as it is ordered. No two assortments will ever be alike. It is our experience (with the double-drop earrings, below) that displays showing a great variety of earrings are best for attracting attention and satisfying customers. Minimum order is one dozen of either single- or double-drop earrings. We used to require, and still strongly encourage, orders of two dozen at a time for greater variety in display.


Single drop earrings retail for $24/pair.


When choosing assortments we will of course take into consideration preferences such as 'lots of blue', 'mostly red', 'especially skinny ones', 'our customers prefer small', and so on. However, given the extra time and work involved in making rounds, if you wish to order a set consisting solely of single rounds, they will cost extra ($28/pr retail). Ordinary single-drop assortments will include at least one pair of rounds.

Double Drop Earrings

Double drop earrings were our most popular item for many years, but have been out of production for a decade. They are available to shops and galleries in assortments only. Each earring consists of a single piece of patinaed brass or flame-treated copper, another piece of polished brass for glitter and accent, and a gold-filled earwire. They are extremely colorful and shiny, and also appeal to the ear with the tinkling sound they make when worn. We choose our assortments carefully for maximum variety and interest. We make the earrings in very small batches, and choose each assortment as it is ordered. No two assortments will ever be alike. It is our experience that displays showing a great variety of earrings are best for attracting attention and satisfying customers. Minimum order is one dozen of either single- or double-drop earrings. We used to require, and still strongly encourage, orders of two dozen at a time for greater variety in display.


Double drop earrings retail for $32/pair.


When choosing assortments we will of course take into consideration preferences such as 'lots of blue', 'mostly red', 'especially skinny ones', 'our customers prefer small', and so on. However, given the extra time and work involved in making rounds, if you wish to order a set consisting solely of double rounds (i.e. where both parts are round), they will cost extra ($40/pr retail). Ordinary double-drop assortments will usually include at least one pair of double rounds.
