California Poppy Teardrop Hoops
This listing is for a pair of California Poppy Hoops. A true labor of love that was hand crafted with Santa Fe Railroad China. These California Poppy ceramics were once plates, used in Santa Fe's Railroad Dining Cars. Dating back to the early 1900's, and made into jewelry in the 20th century. The hand crafted, fine detailed silver ornamentation gives the antique dinnerware a modern twist.
The beautiful California Poppies on this plate were hand cut by me and shaped into teardrops. They were carefully set in a custom fit fine silver bezel. Surrounding the bezel is a backplate covered in stamp embellishments. This created such a lovely frame that compliments the California Poppy centerpiece. The earrings have handmade teardrop details which are affixed to the hoop and hold so much movement.
These earrings have a 20g ear wire, but are a little on the heavier side. 26.7grams per earring, (about 1 oz). So keep that in mind if you are not used to wearing heavy earrings.
Hoop Height (with teardrops): 3.5"
Hoop Width: 2 1/4"
Weight Per Earring: 26.7grams (about 1 oz)
