I hand-cut the sterling silver discs, 1/2" across, gave them a hammered texture, stamped this message of love and hope, and domed them gently. I antiqued them slightly to make the message clear, and then gave them a bright polish. Finally, I placed them on simple sterling earwires that I made all by myself. They measure 1 1/4" from the top of the earwires.
♥This pair of earrings, light oxidation like in the first and fourth photos,will be made to order with your choice of finish from shiny/unoxidized and darker.
♥I could also put any 4-letter word =) on these and make them just for you. Maybe "yes" and "no"? Lots of ideas, not so much time on my end.
The Nitty Gritty (READ THIS if you are considering purchasing this listing, and definitely read it if you are not. It might change your mind!):
Photos are taken in natural light, either sunshine (if available), or an Ott Light. I adjust only the brightness when I edit pictured items. Sometimes the flash makes the silver look really bright, even if oxidized, but it better shows the quality and colors of some stones. All the metal in my jewelry is oxidized or bright sterling silver, and every bead (unless noted) is 100% sterling. All items have been tumbled for hardness and durabilty. The earwire ends are sanded for comfort and to prevent irritation. Most items can also be oxidized (antiqued) for no extra charge. Fine silver earwires can be substituted on most earrings if you have a nickel allergy (the allergen in sterling). No problem! Just convo me at checkout. All of my items are stamped .925 and some are even signed! Cords and chain are always available, even if you don't see the listings in my shop. If you like this unique item, please visit my Etsy shop for more fabulous handmade jewelry!
Thanks for shopping HillCountrySilver,
**Addendum: After a long rehab period, several months later, my nearly tragic ICU patient was back to normal almost like nothing ever happened! It doesn't always work out this well, but the message remains: HOPE is a wonderful thing!!!**
