The earrings shown here were produced from these old Indian dies. They are completely made by hand. The process starts by drawing wire a particular diameter somewhat smaller than the die. The wire is then flatten slightly using a hammer and anvil. This brings the wire to the correct width for the die, but it has now work hardened and has to be annealed. After annealing in fire to soften the wire, it is cleaned and straightened. It is now ready to be patterned. A one inch section of the wire is placed in the die and struck carefully with a brass mallet. The wire is advanced and struck in one inch sections taking care to align the pattern from blow to blow until a sufficient length is achieved.
The patterned wire is again softened by annealing and then twisted and formed into the hoops you see here. After forming and polishing the finished loops are quite hard again and ready to wear. We get a lot of satisfaction out of bringing these very unique and classic old patterns back to life. We hope you like them too.
These graceful earrings are a limited edition. Mounted on handmade sterling silver earwires.
.75 inch Dia. (18mm)
