These earrings were cut from 22g sterling silver sheet that had been run through a rolling mill to give them a nice texture. To finish them I just rolled into this nice shape. A patina was applied to accentuate the pattern.
The earring hangs 1 3/4" to the top of the earwire which is 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.
