I so like the contrast of the oxidized vs. non-oxidized sterling together in one piece, that I've created some simple yet striking earrings that feature this. Pictured here are the bigger hoops - still only about .75" - of the two sizes of these that I've made. I'm also liking the pairing of the basic, plain hoop with an earwire that's just a little out of the ordinary. The hammered wrap still allows the hoop to swing, but it's something different than the usual wire. This line is called Chiaroscuro (Italian for the play of light and dark). These are called Chiaroscuro Hoop Earrings - Bigger. Find them in my Etsy shop. A slightly smaller version is also there.
