In the fall one of my favourite things is watching the little maple 'helicopters' fall from the trees. I go out and collect fallen 'copters, seal them, then electroform then in copper. That's right ear pair of earrings is an actual pod that has been encased in a copper coating. I then patina, polish and wax them.
If you look closely, each pod has it's own character because it's a real and collected from nature. Magical!
The length of the earrings are 3.75 inches from the top of the ear hook to the bottom on the copper chain than hangs down.
