Unique Artisan Earrings

from 50.00

For this design, I measured wire and hand-formed it into the desired shapes.  I, then, melted pieces of metal into balls. Once done with all pieces, I placed them all together in their corresponding positions and made sure that all pieces fit, perfectly, together so that the soldering process was successful.  I, then, soldered all components together while assuring all pieces stayed in place during the 'slippery' soldering process.  

Once soldering was done, I hand-filed each component in order to eliminate any solder remnants and any tool-handling of the pieces, as well as to smooth out the entire pieces.  I tumbled the pieces, for a substantial amount of time, until the perfect amount of strength and additional shine was reached.  I finished them by measuring, cutting, shaping, filing, and hammering a pair of earwires and attaching them to both pieces.  

Although it is a lengthy and messy process, the beautiful results makes it all worthwhile. As seen in the photos, these earrings are the perfect touch for an outing, without overdoing it.
