Niobium hoop earrings with handmade bundle wrap beads. I have anodized each little bundle to be a different color, creating its own subtle gradient color - from Yellow to Gold to Pink. The beads are free floating, so will slide to the bottom even if the hoops tilt. I have also anodized the hoop earrings on the same range of colors for a truly stunning effect. These beautiful earrings are 1.25 inches (3.2 cm) in diameter.
The natural color of niobium is dark gray. The colors in anodized niobium
are achieved by running an electric current through the finished jewelry. I can change the color of the outer layer of the metal, because different voltages introduce gradually thicker layers of niobium oxide. I do all of my own anodizing in-house on my own equipment.
The earrings in these photos are the same ones that you will receive. If your purchase is a gift, let me know and I can help you with the details.
Your jewelry should never cause you pain, or irritate your skin. If you continue to irritate your nickel allergy, your allergic reactions 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. I make each item by hand with care, using entirely nickel-free materials. If you have additional questions for me, please do not hesitate to ask. Thank you for supporting handmade art.
