Handmade Stag Beetle Earrings in Copper & Sterling Silver, Handmade Insect Jewelry, Stag Beetle Jewelry, Gift for Entomologist
Handmade copper & sterling silver earrings featuring a pair of stag beetles. These stag beetle earrings make the perfect gift for the bug lover in your life. Perfect for science teachers, gardeners, entomologists or entomology students -- any insect lover that can appreciate the beauty of stag beetles!
After preparing the art for this design, I use an acid bath to etch the artwork deep into the copper plates. The copper plates and sterling silver components are then soldered together using good, old-fashioned silversmithing techniques . The completed earrings are then hand patinated, then expertly polished to bring out that gorgeous copper blush which contrasts so beautifully with the sterling silver.
Please note that these are made-to-order, so you will need to allow 2-3 weeks for completion.
