These raw brass disks have an aged patina so there's no need to worry about polishing them. The disks are hand-hammered and domed for texture and shape with the bottom disk attached securely with a heavy gauge oval-shaped gunmetal jump ring to the bottom disk. The ear wire is handmade with aged brass, and plastic earring backs are included to prevent loss. The earrings may have some slight variations.

Meet the Maker
Owner Staci Egan started Contempo Jewelry in 1999, leaving her other job in 2008 to run her jewelry company full-time. She is a Pennsylvania-based nature lover and small-batch jewelry designer/instructor, who specializes in wire working techniques featuring semi-precious stones, freshwater pearls, and assorted conflict-free metals. She loves things naturally beautiful like fresh-picked strawberries or sweet-scented pink peonies that have imperfections, like the freshwater pearls and semi-precious stones she uses. Each piece may have some extra lines, blemishes, and even inclusions, giving each unique piece character. Staci and husband David are part of a team supporting local and handmade items in rural Pennsylvania sold at their Philipsburg-based store Smith + Front.
