A beautiful combination of hand-wrapped aged raw brass wire and Turquoise stone beads create these stud earrings. Smooth and round Turquoise stone beads are securely hand wire wrapped with oxidized brass wire. The earrings have been induced to age and show oxidation that brings out beautiful warmer and darker tones in the brass. Antiqued brass ear clutches finish the earrings.

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.
