I have developed these earrings from my Torcesque bracelet, which was was inspired by the torcs made by the Iceni tribe with there beautiful twisted wire detail and wanted to create a bracelet with that same look of strength combined with simple, delicate detail.
This simple, sleek design is surprisingly light weight. I have used double 6 loop Viking knit as the focal of the hoop, which holds its shape due to the core wire running through the knit. The chain is finished with handmade wire caps, Either end of the chain is a Turquoise bead. The earring is secured closed with a hinged earwire, which allows the earring to swing freely, whilst closing easily and securely.
The earrings are made with copper wire and measure 1 1/3" across the outer edge.
This item comes in a jewellery box.
