Quake inspired tiny studs measuring 10 x 7mm
*** Made to Order ***
I sawed these from 0.8mm eco-silver* sterling sheet, filing and sand ingthe saw marks and kerf away then solder on a sterling earpost
With anything that needs to be a close to matching pair, I always make more than one pair so I can get the best matching - as you can see from these photos, I had to saw 4 to achieve one decent pair ;-)
Because I saw them individually there will be slight variations to each pair.
These were a specific commission request, but I am very happy to make more, or to make them larger or as drops - please allow me up to a week to do so.
Shown with a UK penny and USA dime for scale and on a DGD display card which is 55 x 55mm (two and a quarter inches)

**Eco silver is certified recycled by my bullion dealer - it's made from the waste and offcuts returned and reclaimed in the jewellery process, which means it's environmental impact is significantly lower than if mined afresh.
Thanks for looking!

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 as certified recycled.
The 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.
