Teardrop earrings black and gold
black and gold dangle earrings
Handmade earrings in black and gold.
These are a versatile dangle earring, just the right size for everyday to elegant. Hand textured blackened silver forms a teardrop which hangs down from a blackened silver circle. The teardrop moves on teensy tiny hinges. A 14k delicate chain suspends a circle of gold. This circle has tiny little hammered circles which catch the light. Posts are 14k, for sensitive ears. One really nice aspect is their lightness for the width of the earring. They are comfortable to wear and don’t weigh down the earlobe like many larger earrings do.

Why recycled metal?
All of the metals used are recycled and smelted in the USA. This prevents additional mining, which can be quite dangerous for the planet. While many companies have pledged to use clean mines, there are still many ‘dirty mining’ processes. For example cyanide used to extract the gold leaches in to the ground water, and can kill living things down stream. I use the most reputable dealers possible, which can be more costly, but is better in the long run and for peace of mind. If you are interested in learning more about gold mining, here is an article from the Smithsonian Magazine: The Environmental Disaster That is the Gold Industry
