Our Beaded Bronze Centipede Earrings Are a Wiggly Delight! These sweet little earrings mimic the Centipede in the way they are made plus we added a few beads for you in the middle for a bit of pizazz. In warm rich tones of Bronze and Cocoa, they are a treat for any outfit.
What is anodized aluminum? The aluminum alloy used is 95% aluminum and 5% magnesium; this creates a ring that is approx. 2/3rds the strength of steel but 1/3rd the weight. Anodizing is a process that adds a hard finish to the ring that gives it its color. The finish is corrosion resistant and can stand up to most damage without flaking, cutting or grinding on the ring with another hard metal surface (grooved pliers, scissors, etc.…) and acids like chlorine will cause damage. Combined this means you have rings that are light, strong and resistant to most forms of common wear and tear. Cleaning should be handled with water and non-acidic soap.
Glass beads – are like candy adornments, each one a mini-masterpiece of molten glass turned cool. Glass beads have held sway over commerce and trade throughout history and now beckon to beaders and crafters of all ages with their stunning variety of colors, shapes, textures, sizes, and styles.
These Earrings are made in the chain maille style called Centipede Weave which is kind of misleading as it doesn't look much like a centipede. Large Rings are held together on the sides by small ones making it look like a spine or similar to a centipede.
Try not to wear your jewelry if you are going to be working out sweating too much, going into the ocean, when taking a shower or bath, or doing the dishes. Sometimes we forget to rinse off our jewelry after these activities or to let them air dry or dry thoroughly which can start to do extra damage over time.
Please remember that since this is a handcrafted item there can be some small tool marks (scuffs) on the piece, please remember this when purchasing. Any ring with obvious damage is not used; however, I endeavor to prevent any scuffs and marring.
