My original model for these earrings was was hand formed then "sand cast", an ancient technique not much in use today. Sand casting uses actual sand and leaves the texture of the sand on the metal. That texture can be seen here in the "bowl"of the earrings. I've polished the outside edges for an arresting contrast. And, of course I handmade that original model.
These are small, ladylike earrings about 1/2 inch in length measured from the top of the "bowl"
