FIRST OFF: I don't really know *squat* about jewelry in general, ladies' jewelry in particular. ANY INPUT from ANYONE about these is welcomed and will be greatly appreciated!! And now that we've got that outta the way... ;-) :-)
This pair of earrings has been made from copper and silver wire which has been rather intricately twisted into various shapes. The 'main' piece of each is a triangle-ish shape of copper, the top ends of each side fastened with round copper loops to another small twisty copper piece that holds the silver ear hook, as well as a small triangular twisted silver dangle hanging in the middle of everything. Both lower corners and the middle of the bottom feature small coiled silver dangles, the center one also having a small red plastic (?) bead on a copper holder. They are a little over an inch wide and about 2" long.
NO IDEA who made them, when, nor where -- but for some reason I've always imagined they're the kind of thing made/sold by an artisan/craftsman (maybe even 'before your eyes, as you watch'?) at street fairs/festivals/etc. They just have a wonderfully 'imperfect symmetry' about 'em that fairly screams "handmade" to me...??
Frankly I also don't really remember when/where I got them though I'm reasonably certain it was somewhere 'for free', as I'm quite certain I'm a guy thus they'd likely look *really strange* on me if I wore them...? <LOL> Instead, they usually just hang from my desk lamp (or somewhere, from something) simply because I like 'em...?? ;-) :-) :-)
