  • Science fiction inspired sterling silver Star Fleet insignia drop earrings

     

    I saw these from 0.8 mm sterling silver* sterling sheet, file and sand, then solder them to a jumpring I've also made and lightly beaten so that there's just a hint of extra sparkle.

     

    I then solder on the sterling silver earwires, finally sanding the front before polishing and tumbling to harden them up

     

    Because I saw them individually there will be slight variations to each pair as shown in the collection on my little vase, and I make these to order, so please allow a week to 10 days for me to do so.

     

    See the Work in Progress collages at the end of the similar Klingon Empire listing for an insight into how I do all this :-)

     

    Two styles available:

    a) with outer ring

    b) without outer ring

    Both hang 28mm from piercing (with the top of the insignia at 15mm)

     

    Please be aware that I make all these by hand, in mini batches of about 6 at a time, so that I can match the pairs as closely as possible. Please allow for a slight variance in their dimensions.

     

    Shown with a UK penny 2 Euro coin and a USA dime for scale

    **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.
