Star Trek inspired com badge earrings (for those days when you have to be a little more subtle and do your beaming from the head) made from sterling silver and highly polished or buffed to a satin finish on request.
These are individually sawn from sterling silver sheet, are available in two sizes, and are priced per pair.
Small 12mm x 7mm
Tiny 8mm x 5mm
These are the first made and photographed of a new variant to my ever popular Star Trek line, Traditionally aligned and in this instance with a 24 carat gold plating applied using the Keum-boo technique (see final photos for how I do this)
Remember that I make all these by hand, so there will be slight variances in the sizes, and the measurements are approximate. I usually make up a mini batch of my earrings, so I can pair them into the best matching options.
Do message me if you want a pair with a satin finish, or want to mix and match with other studs as I'll make you some specially
As with all my earrings, I tend to make a small batch enabling me to then select the best matching pairs.
Thanks for looking!
Live Long and Prosper \\//_
Golden Star Trek inspired fine silver 'communications badge' studs
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.
