Long and lean - you'll love the feel of these sterling silver earrings - hammered dangles. 16 gauge wire (and don't forget, the smaller the gauge, the thicker the wire!) has hammered, buffed, and polished to make these hand formed dangle earrings. To add extra visual interest, I wrapped more silver wire at the top to tie it all together.

They measure almost 2 3/4 inches from top of earwire to base of dangle. Nice!

Martini Jewels uses recycled and reclaimed argentium sterling silver. Same quality as traditional sterling silver, better for the environment. Who knew silver could be green?

I use only argentium sterling silver from recycled resources. What's argentium sterling? To answer that question, it's important to know what traditional sterling is. Traditional sterling is 92.5% fine silver and 7.5% copper - it's the copper that causes tarnishing. Argentium silver substitutes germanium, a white metal for a portion of the copper. Because it still has the same percentage of fine silver it's still referred to as sterling. It has a high tarnish resistance, which makes it a perfect modern choice for the wearer.

Why recycled sterling silver? It's good for the environment and shares the same high quality as traditional sterling silver. I pay a little more to obtain my raw materials, but I feel it's worth it. I hope you do too.

Your earrings arrive in a craft box from recycled materials (of course!), complete with a generous square of sunshine polishing cloth, 3M anti tarnish strip and rubber earbacks, so you never have to worry about losing one. Giving as a gift? More than happy to enclose a handwritten card, in silver ink, of course!
