These are tiny heart posts made of sterling silver. They were made by me of raw materials in my studio.
I initially photoetched sterling silver sheet to make a pattern with tiny hearts. I then used a very fine saw blade and cut each out individually, being careful to leave just a hair of metal around the heart so that it shows the etching. Each heart was then filed with a microfile and sanded to clean up the edges. An earring post of sterling silver was soldered to the back. Finally, they were oxidized and then the patina was selectively removed to matte the finish and show off the etched surface.
This listing is for a pair of hearts. They measure 3/16 inch (4 mm) in diameter. They include 2 ear post nuts.
