These Colorful Shaggy Loop Earrings are charmingly playful, allowing bits of color to dance and sing from your ears. Who doesn't love dancing and singing with their color? I know I do. These Colorful Shaggy Loop Earrings are made with colored anodized aluminum rings in a rainbow of colors.
Chain Maille- the act of adding links of a chain together to make a pattern for jewelry, armor, or clothing. ( for a list of different types of weaves that can be made try my chain maille page description page.)
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 nonacidic soap.
If you would like to know more about the gemstones, rings, and items I use in making our handmade items like this, Colorful Shaggy Loop Earrings; please take a look at the Gemstone Description Page and my Chain Maille Descriptions page.
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.
