These are made by taking 3/4" copper discs and hammering to my hearts content. No thought, no planning. Just enjoying whacking the crap out of a small piece of copper with a hammer. The finish on these is satin and is achieved by adding a patina and than tumbling in media for many hours. This gives the metal a nice soft look. The ear wires are sterling silver. These will hang about an inch and half from ear lobe.
