Doll Hand Hoop Earrings, Bronze or Sterling Silver
Graceful little hands are carefully hand-cast in golden bronze or sterling silver from vintage doll parts using lost-wax casting, and polished to a high shine. Each pair has a left and right hand. A hand-hammered sterling silver hoop runs though each wrist. Earrings have soldered sterling silver posts and backs. I've used a metal sealant on the bronze earrings to protect the finish.
Throughout the ages the hand is regarded as a symbol of protection, power and strength. The hand has become one of the most popular shapes of amulets and talismans that are meant to ward off evil, disease, envy and distraction. There are more nerve endings in the human hand than in any other part of the body, which renders them the most useful, effective and powerful parts of our body.
Measures 1 3/8" long from the top of the ear wire and 3/4" wide. Please allow 10-14 days for casting in bronze or sterling silver.
