Did you know that Maine is the only state whose state flower is not actually a flower at all? Lawmakers chose the White Pine Cone because the state was commonly known as the Pine Tree state.
Arborists, tree huggers and nature enthusiasts love these handmade, copper, pine tree earrings. Show your strength and groundedness in your personality as you wear these earrings. They are a great compliment for many outfits. You can dress them up or wear them casual.
The dark patina emphasizes the design and gives the earrings a dramatic look. I have applied a metal sealer to the front side to help preserve the colors. The nickel free ear wires and other areas of the earrings will naturally patina. They measure 1.5″ long (plus an additional 0.5″ drop with the ear wire) x 0.5″ wide.
To achieve the design on these earrings, I have used an acid etching technique. Years of experimenting with and fine tuning the process has led to the intricate details you see here.
