The blue-green slag pieces are made during the process of smelting in which raw ore is heated and the desired iron ore is collected. When the impurities cool this waste material is formed. In this case, it has been collected, cut, and polished - RECLAIMED.
The definition of reclaimed is “to retrieve or recover (something previously lost, given, or paid); obtain the return of.”
We are almost to the point of having the “Stay At Home” Order in effect for one year. One year! It’s a good thing though, it keeps us safe, however, I can’t help but miss getting together with you, seeing you in yoga class, at an opening, at a dinner party, out to eat or at a live show!!! As the vaccines roll out (slowly but better than not at all) it’s got me thinking of all these things we get to reclaim! Reclaim as our own again. Let these earrings be your reminder of the precious things you’ll reclaim!
The Earrings hang down 3.25" and are set and backed with Oxidized Sterling Silver. They have Sterling Silver posts and backs.
