"Messy Knots I"

These very messy looking knot earrings are the result of a careless soldering session which changed the original shape of the first earring. I made my best attempt to get the same look to the 2nd earring, which was easier than I thought! The result looks something like a bumblebee design.

The overall knot is rectangular in shape, with the long side being about 1/2 inch and the shorter side maybe 1/4 of an inch. The knot itself is made with sterling silver and vermeil jump rings. The posts are gold plated surgical steel, and the earnuts shown are titanium.

Knot diameter: 1/2 inch at the widest
Knot metal: Sterling silver & vermeil (24k gold plated sterling silver)
Post metal: Gold plated surgical steel
Earnuts: Titanium

I create my chainmaille knot earrings from a variety of supplies -- these earrings are made from sterling silver and vermeil rings that I weave into the knot design that you see. These knots are then soldered with a silver solder to plated steel posts. Both earrings are then cleaned using food-grade materials and finally, gently tumble polished.

*** Like something like this in a different metal? I can do everything from solid gold (10 & 14k) to sterling silver, argentium silver, copper, steel, nickel silver, and bronze. Prices vary depending on materials.

Frequently asked questions about zsjewelry

I use a standard US ring size system. If you do not know your ring size, you may either be sized by a local jeweler or download a printable ring sizer just about anywhere on the internet that offers one that uses the United States ring size system. Contact me if you need a link to a printable ring sizer. I'm working on my own!
My bracelets are all created and measured in inches. Each listing will explain in the description the best way to measure for the fit of that particular bracelet. Please read carefully! Bracelets can be re-sized if you do end up with an incorrect length, but it will require that you ship the bracelet back to me (at your expense). Please feel free to contact me if you have a specific question about a bracelet size. For any bracelet in my shop, you may provide me with a loose or snug wrist measurement and I will help you determine the correct size!
Many of my items are made-to-order. While most will ship within 1-2 business days when I'm not busy, some require up to and over a week to create and be ready for shipping. Please click the "shipping & payments" tab to see the processing time for the item you want! I aim to keep those as accurate as possible!
Most of my jewelry can be easily cared for by using commercial copper, brass, bronze, steel, and precious metal cleaners. If you dislike all those chemicals, you can also use a homemade cleaning solution made from vinegar and salt (followed by a short bath in a baking soda and water solution to neutralize the acidic vinegar). If you need detailed instructions on how to do this, ask me!

Note: DO NOT use acidic cleaners on anything containing pearls! Most harder gemstones should be fine.
No, I do not sell my jewelry wholesale currently.
All of my metals are either USA or Canada sourced unless otherwise specified. Plated materials may come from China.

My gemstone beads come directly from dealers I meet at gem shows and occasionally online jewelry retailers. I try hard to record their country of origin whenever possible.
