Sylvi developed the technique of anodizing aluminum she uses in the early eighties, and is one of the few artists today who anodizes her own work. This gives her greater artistic freedom and total control over her art. It is an industrial process which involves converting aluminum hydroxide to aluminum oxide, which is a reactive state respondent to coloring agents. The metal is electro-chemically prepared, then dyed and sealed, rendering the color permanent and the metal non-corrosive.
All products are of anodized aluminum, 100% hand crafted (including all parts) and dyed by the artist. Colors are vibrant and penetrate the metal. Exceptionally lightweight. Ear wires are surgical steel (non-allergenic), the posts are titanium.
These are a great pair of earrings, suggested only for a woman who secretly enjoys people looking their way. Please click through the detail images to get an idea of where they fall. Most of the Eclat line boasts asymmetrical earring designs - where one earring may be longer than the other, and most earrings although presenting the same colorway, do not match in design. That's the way they are supposed to be.
The earrings are not the same length but colors are the same. It's the way they are supposed to be.
Longest is 3.75" long from the center of the ear wire curve. Triangle piece is 1.25" long and 1" wide.
Other earring is 3.25" long. Triangle is 1" long and 1" wide.
