Handmade and hand-formed studs earrings from recycled sterling silver. The post is made of sterling. Earrings are packaged in a gift box and come with sterling silver backs. Oxidization is the process of blackening a metal. When the piece comes out of the oxidation solution it is completely black! I then remove some of the oxidation with fine steel wool. The result adds dimension and contrast to the piece.
I approach my craft with 15 years of experience using traditional and time-honored metalsmithing traditions in my upstate NY studio.
Caring for the environment is a keystone of my practice. I source my metals from companies that provide recycled material. Sourcing from sustainable companies that reclaim and process fine metals means that my materials are not newly mined, which makes for an eco-friendly practice.
