  • Science fiction inspired Federation Insignia earrings (for those days when you have to be a little more subtle and do your beaming from the head) made from fine silver and highly polished or buffed to a satin finish on request.

     

    These are individually formed from Art Clay Silver, which, when fired becomes 99.9 silver, I solder on a sterling silver post and include sturdy sterling butterfly backs.

    When I have them completed, I add liver of sulphur to highlight the impressed star, buffing back the excess, and then sealing the patination with Renaissance Wax

     

    They measure approximately 11mm x 8mm

    I make these to match, in traditional orientation, and to order, so please allow a week to 10 days for me to do so.

     

    See my other listing for ones without the command star impressed into them

     

     

    **I've been using Eco silver since 2016, but now all the silver elements are 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! Live Long and Prosper \\//_

    • 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.
