  • I make all the components for these from recycled 925 sterling silver.

     

    I use 1.2mm wire to form and cut rings, which I then solder closed, lightly hammering both sides for extra sparkle.

     

    Then I solder 0.8 wire to the circles, and send them for a polish in my tumbler.

    Finally, using natural gemstone beads and fine silver wire, I string and wire wrap gemstones within the hoops.

    This design gives great security due to the length of the earwire, and is ideal for people who like a drop but not a dangle ;-)

     

    This particular pair were a commission for a local customer and so will be made to order but I have lots of other 2 mm gemstones that would work brilliantly – (see the full list below) the faceted options are blue lapis, pale blue aquamarine, golden labradorite, black spinels, and the smooth are garnets, rock crystal, peridot, denim iolite plus I have some black diamond nuggets and faceted multicoloured sapphires (the diamonds and sapphires incur a small surcharge)

    I have many other stones I can use if you have a birthstone or specific gem you'd prefer.**

     

    Total drop from piercing of 29 - 32mm (approx) See individual photos for the slight variances, which relate to the length of the earwires

     

    All the sterling is recycled.

     

    I've listed these as pairs, but I am very happy to sell you just one, or mix and match a pair if you'd like, or make you a pair of differing lengths. Just contact me. If you would like a bespoke pair, with Argentium earwires please contact me, as I'll be happy to make a pair just for you.

     

     

    **see other listings for others I have ready for dispatch, and message me if you have a colour or a stone you'd like - I've made these to match outfits for a number of people.

     

    Notes:

    I only use natural light and take all pictures in my home, so I have used a variety of backgrounds to help display the colouration and avoid your disappointment.

    • Sterling Silver will eventually oxidise or tarnish. It's a natural process that can be slowed down by regular wear and by keeping unworn items away from the atmosphere. If you leave your jewellery out on display, this oxidisation will be faster.  You can polish up your items, with a soft cloth, some silver polish, or a buffing cloth such as Town Talk, which is readily available from any high street jewellers in the UK

      Fine silver is 99.9% silver, and because of this the tarnish rate is much, much slower. Again, a buff should do the job for polishing it back up. If I have patinated your silver already, be gentle when buffing!

      Each piece should stand up to regular wear, but , as with all jewellery, please remove it before washing, using chemicals or applying perfume etc

      Apply body lotion and perfume a few minutes before putting on your jewellery to help slow down tarnish

      The sterling silver used in these items was sold to me by my bullion dealer ass certified recycled.

      he gemstones I use have been sold to me by reputable dealers as untreated (unless stated specifically in the listing). They are a natural, organic creation from the earth and each one will be slightly different. You can see examples of this on my Facebook page.
      I select the stones that I think go together best for each project, hence my comments that each item is individual.
