These small brass teardrop earrings feature the Big Dipper (Ursa Major) and Little Dipper (Ursa Minor) constellations - one on each earring - with additional teeny tiny individually stamped stars around them. The earring hooks are also brass.

These Big Dipper/Little Dipper constellation earrings are very lightweight, and are great for those who love dangle earrings but can't wear heavy ones!

I have individually stamped the little stars onto the front of each brass teardrop. I then went through a finishing process of gently sanding, oxidizing, buffing, and lightly polishing the pendant, finishing it with a lightly textured matte surface with a subtle shine. I've coated the teardrop charms in wax sealer which will help keep them brightly colored, but please note that brass will develop a patina over time. Please see "Care" guide below.

The earring hooks are brass, which I have made by hand.

Each brass constellation drop measures approximately 1-inch tall (2.54cm) by 3/8-inch wide (.95cm.) The total length from top to bottom when you include the height of the earring hook is approximately 1 & 1/2-inches long (3.81cm.)

You can use a soft polishing pad/cloth [made for brass jewelry] if you wish, but do note that brass naturally oxidizes over time with exposure to air, perfumes, lotions, etc. and will develop a darker patina. I have coated the pendant in a thin layer of wax sealer which will help delay the patina. I recommend keeping your jewelry dry and putting it on last when you're getting ready for the day.

All of my jewelry is sent in a gift box tied with a ribbon, ready for gift giving or receiving!
