These earrings are so interesting. Sterling silver sheet was cut 3/4" wide by 1 5/8" long. After annealing (heating) they were folded and opened back up. I did this process 4 times to get the cross patterns. After rounding and smooting the edges I hand torched them and this beautiful brown-orange color came out. It is so fun to watch that happen.
The earwires are handmade from 20g sterling silver wire.
Sterling silver may tarnish if not stored properly. An anti-tarnish pad is included with these earrings and should be stored with them when not being worn. A good jewelry polishing cloth should remove any tarnish if it appears.
