“Big Swirl ” Design
This is a handmade textured “Big Swirl” Sterling Silver Earrings. It amazes me with each new design that I do what can be created from a simple piece of wire and some basic tools. The artist breathes life into a boring strip of wire. It starts it’s incredible journey from wire to become this Sterling Silver Earrings. The story starts with the artist but continues on its own unique journey with you the customer. Each piece is unique to itself the 1st time or the fifth time I make it.That is the beauty of handmade.
It starts with 4″ of 16 gage sterling wire. I curl one end of the wire and go to the opposite end and start a smaller curl going the opposite direction. Once I have the wire close to where I want it, I flip it upside down and use a planishing hammer to flatten the wire on an anvil. Once the wire is flatten I use a texturing hammer to ornate the sterling earrings. I have to be careful that I keep the wire where it maintain the round design. Tweak here and there to get it where I like it.
Why buy these Sterling Silver Earrings from me?
Quality and your Satisfaction are my goals!
Finishing this pair of Sterling Silver Earrings is just as important as creating them. This is where some artist get in a hurry. They have spent all their time creating and now they want to start on the next project. I have learn this it what sets my work apart from others. There are no shortcuts. I just do not get in a hurry at the end. I use a buffing machine and I go through a 6 step of using different finishing brushes. Once I am satisfied with the finish I then let it tumble for 12 hours to help work harden and burnish the shine further.
Ear Wires are made from Sterling Silver and are NICKEL FREE
