Brass & Pearl Asymmetrical Earrings

*from the Shape-Up Collection

These earrings are midway between earrings and ear hugs. Their design is deceptively easy on the eye, but difficult to get so perfectly smooth and aligned. They hold you to attention with that sleek simplicity.

I called them Glide – because they do. The snowdrop-like big pearls at the bottom finish off that effect well. To me they say: I’m proud of what I am here, now, AS I am :o)

No frills – just full of lines and beauty.

I LOVE working with freshwater pearls of any size. But these big ones have so much personality and individuality. No two are alike. Yet somehow when I look at these two together, they make a partnership. They look like they belong.

The Shape-Up collection stands for pieces that remind you to stand tall in your rightful expression as you move into the world. To not shrivel or shy away because society around you may not like it.

And Pearls are the ultimate strong but feminine and sophisticated expression of this. Not just because they’re pure, regal, and rich, but also because they have many facets – just like a woman – there’s a mystery, and it’ll unfold when it is ready – when IT decides it’s time.

What you choose to wear these with, is up to you. Just be ready to be seen. And know you deserve to take up your full space – you give others the permission to do so too.

Send me a photo of yourself wearing them :o)

 

Materials

Gemstones — Large Freshwater Pearls.
Base metal — Golden Brass. It looks just like 14K gold to start with and will wear pretty well.

Here are the most common ring sizes and their conversions across the main geographical regions.

If you don’t know the ring size you need, you could measure the circumference of your finger by using a piece of string. Wrap the string around your finger carefully without tightening or loosening it too much, and tie it in a knot. Cut the string anywhere else except on the knot. Then measure from one end of the cut to the other (across the knot). That’s your finger circumference to use to check up your size.

If you’re unsure – please contact me – I can help :o)

Your shipping is free on orders over $45. The free shipping includes worldwide tracked & signed-for standard shipping. I decided to do that just to make it simpler for your experience here.

If you would like expedited shipping via a courier, I can provide you with a separate estimate. Please email me via my contact page to let me know of your preferences.

All pieces are created with natural metals and stones, which makes them a little more vulnerable to their external environment. Please keep them away from all chemicals and acids (like perfumes, creams, or hand sanitizers – anything that you wouldn’t eat :o).

Ideally, store them in an enclosed pouch or box, as all metals react with air and water particles over time. You’ll receive your piece inside a plastic zip-lock pouch with an anti-tarnish strip inside for that reason (certainly not because it makes it attractive – sorry). If you can keep your pieces inside those – great.

But I know we have better things to do than to be super strict with storing our jewelry the right way, so when your favorites get a little less than perfect, here are a few quick & easy steps to refresh them:

  • You’ll receive a shining cloth that you can use to clean your piece with, from time to time. This is great for a quick clean. Use the cloth as is – DO NOT WET it please, as it will get ‘gummy’. It will clean pretty much all types of metal with moderate tarnish. It will last a while, so keep it – it’s a good tool to have on your side.
  • When cleaning your pieces – be careful – don’t be too harsh with the stones. These can move or break – so please be kind.
  • Should you need to clean copper with more serious tarnish: use a salt : vinegar : water paste in roughly 1:3:3 parts ratios. Immerse the pieces (try to avoid dipping the stones for too long), and gently scrub with a toothbrush into the more intricate areas. This is a fantastic cleaner for copper – also a great party trick :o)
  • To clean your gold-like brass pieces: use normal toothpaste and an old toothbrush. Coat the piece with the toothpaste gently (don’t use water yet, or maybe just a little if needed. Rub with the brush or massage in with your fingers. Wash the toothpaste off thoroughly within a minute, as the paste may start to harden, which makes it harder to get off afterward. Make sure you’ve got all the toothpaste out.
