Simple drop earrings with brown shell bead dangles. These earrings hang from handmade niobium french hook earwires, and are an easy-to-wear 1.5 inches long. I have anodized these earwires and metal components to be "bronze" in color to complement the colors of the beads.
These beads are flat coin shell beads, a full 2 cm across (3/4 inch), very lightweight. The patterning on the beads is natural, and and a beautiful organic irregularity. The shell colors have been dyed by the manufacturer to enhance colors.
The natural color of niobium is steel gray. The colors in anodizing niobium are achieved by running an electric current through the metal at specific levels. Using this method, I can change the color of the outer layer of the metal - there are no dyes or other metals used in this process - it is still pure niobium all the way through.

The earrings in these photos are exactly the same ones you will receive. Your earrings will arrive in a small gift box or pouch, suitable for giving or storing your jewelry.
Every item I create is handmade and nickel free. Your jewelry should never cause you pain or irritation. If you continue to irritate your nickel allergy, your allergic reaction will become more severe over time. Nickel allergies can appear at any age and last a lifetime, so everyone can benefit from choosing nickel-free jewelry.
