For those of you who love some length in their earrings like me, I have several pairs of stirrup earrings with the “leathers” wrapped around the iron! In this case, the leathers are copper and I have finished with a patina so they look brown like the leathers on your English saddle! I myself have always preferred long earrings; maybe it’s my short hair!
The stirrup bottoms are hammer textured sterling silver. Once I was happy with the shape and size of the stirrup bottoms, I soldered down the sterling silver wire to complete the “irons”. This pair has some length to them but they are still sweet and not overpowering! Could be a great pair if you like something different but don’t want it to be so obvious!
And as you know, all the earrings in my shop have solid sterling silver ear wires for comfort and quality!
