Bronze is an alloy traditionally composed of copper and tin. Bronze is of exceptional historical interest and still finds wide applications. It was made before 3000 BC, though its use in artifacts did not become common until much later. The historical tradition of Irish metalwork begins back in the Irish Bronze Age (c.3500-1100 BCE). Irish craftsmen produced a range of simple shapes in bronze. Irish and Celtic metalworking traditions fused in the late Irish Iron Age (400 BCE - 100 CE) to produce a number of outstanding pieces of artistic metalwork. These pieces of bronze jewelry follow the tradition of bronze metalwork established in Ireland and other Celtic nations.
Earrings measure 1/2" x 1/2" in size with bronze and enamel work.
