Two horseshoe shaped connector links hand made from 16 gauge, solid copper wire, hammered flat to enhance the shape, then lightly oxidized for an antiqued look. They measure 24 mm tall by 17 mm wide, or a snip under one inch long and about 3/4" wide. These can be used as necklace pendants with a wrapped stone suspended in the middle, or can be turned upside-down and used as large earring links with a drop wrapped between the open end. So versatile!
Material: Solid COPPER Size: 24 mm tall by 17 mm wide / approx' 1 inch by 3/4 inch.
Orders ship in protective packaging via USPS first class mail with online tracking to destination.
USPS rates are due for an increase 1/22/2017 and they are reverting to tiered pricing for domestic shipments, so I am going back to a tiny charge for additional items to cover this.

F.A.Q's For any questions not answered below, please contact me.
WHAT IS 925/10 SILVER FILLED 925/10 silver-filled is sterling silver that is mechanically bonded to a base metal. This is a strong physical bond, not weak electroplating, so the sterling does not flake or wear off. A lot of silver-filled products are labeled 925/20, which means it must have at least 1/20 of its weight in silver, or 5% silver. At Taurii I prefer 925/10 silver filled, which contains 10% sterling silver - BETTER! You care for your 925/10 silver filled jewelry in the same way that you do your solid sterling pieces. It WILL tarnish over time, as 925SS does, and is cleaned in the same way - using gentle detergent and a soft brush / cloth, or the pre-treated cleaning cloths. I do not recommend the harsh silver dips and polishes, especially if your piece contains stones / pearls. Once fully air dried, your jewelry is best stored in little airtight zip lock baggies. Exposure to air is what causes the dark oxidation - or tarnish - process.
WHAT IS GOLD FILLED? Gold-filled is an economical alternative to solid gold. By law, it has 1/20th by weight layer of 14 karat gold permanently bonded over a core of base metal. It is tarnish-resistant, safe for sensitive skin and, unlike gold plated, will not wear off. It is considered a fine metal, and you care for it in the same way as you do your solid gold pieces, gently cleaning them with mild detergents, soft brush and a buffing cloth.
WHAT ARE FRESHWATER PEARLS? A pearl formed in a mollusk, often a mussel, that lives in freshwater rather than salt water. The pearls come in many shapes, sizes and colors. They form as any other pearl, built up in layers called nacre.
WHAT IS "SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS"? Austrian Swarovski crystal is fired using a combination of natural minerals and quartz sand, cooled slowly to avoid stress and inclusions, a process perfected by the Swarovski family over the last 100 years. These crystals contain a higher than average percentage of lead, which increases light refraction, and are extremely crisply faceted, hence the extra sparkle!
