Verdigris Flower Sakura Blossom Earrings
A sakura blossom, also known as a cherry blossom, takes on a slightly different color scheme, inspired by a lovely sheet of scrap booking paper that I recently found. The blossoms have been given a patina by hand using chemicals to achieve the great verdigris looking finish. These are sealed, 22 x 22 mm charms, and are lead and nickel free. I added Swarovski crystals in the center, and also used golden tourmaline rondelles at the top. Earrings are approx. 1 3/4 " or 4.4 cm from the top of their 14 k gold filled ear hooks to the bottom petal.
