Small Sterling Silver Turquoise Earrings, Handmade
These tiny handmade earrings are cut from sterling silver sheet I textured with sandpaper and a funky metal pattern through my rolling mill. From that textured sheet I cut dainty little circles, dapped them for a little doming effect, and silver soldered bezel cups to hold the deep purple amethyst stones. The earwires are also handmade from 20 gauge sterling silver wire. The entire earring was oxidized black and then polished to bring out the shiny high points, while leaving dark oxidation in the low areas.
Metal: Sterling silver wire and textured sheet
Stones: Round 5mm turquoise
Earrings: Each 1-1/4 inches long x 1/2 inch wide (3cm x 1cm)
The earrings will come packaged ready for gift-giving.
