Pen Nib Earrings with Iolite Ink Drops

These earrings are part of a collection called "The Writer". The collection is a work in progress and is based on the theme of writing.

A pen nib design is etched into brass rectangles and is accented with black and teal ink that is made for metal (which acted as the acid resist while etching). The metal is sealed with wax to protect the finish. A 4mm faceted iolite "ink drop" hangs from the tip of each pen nib.

The pen nibs measure 0.35''x1.25'' and hang from sterling silver ear wires. The earrings measure 2'' from the top of the ear wires and include a pair of hypoallergenic ear wire guards.
