Modern, minimalist style scalloped blade earrings are drawn and cut by hand from flat recycled sterling silver sheet stock using my jeweler’s saw. The edges are filed smooth, then the lines are defined with a chisel. The shapes are gently dapped and given depth and form using traditional goldsmithing hand tools. Self-locking standard 20 gauge sterling ear wires are soldered along the top portion. Tumbled for several hours in steel shot and burnishing compound adds strength and shine. Color is then added with permanent pigmented slate blue micro-crystalline wax–both front and back. Some of the color is then scratched off to reveal the shiny silver beneath.
Measures approx. 2″, 5.08cm from the top of the ear wire.
Verdigris (dark green patina)
Patina (pale green patina)
African Gold (metallic gold w/ a greenish tint)
If you wish a color other than the slate blue as shown, please specify your preference in the “notes to merchant” upon checkout.
