This is one of my most popular patterns. I specialize in making steel stamps to create my designs. It took 6 different ones to create this complex pattern. Each will be a little different, but will have the same overall look. See notes on sizes and patinas below.

These measure 1 1/4" across. They're made from 2mm wide 16 gauge Argentium(ar-JEN-tee-um) tarnish-resistant sterling silver, which is fantastic stuff. It's a little more expensive, but it really works! Your earrings will be SO easy to take care of! Plus, many people who have a sensitivity to silver can wear Argentium quite comfortably.(Check out if you'd like more info.) These have good weight, but will feel light in your ears.

The tapered hook and eye closure I make is much more refined and elegant than what you'll commonly see elsewhere. The portion that goes through your ear is usually a little thicker than the average ear post. I typically don't polish pieces to a high finish, and they generally have a more matte appearance.

The giant closeup photos here don't really show how fantastic they will look when you wear them. My life-size "Ear on a Wire" shows you the size relative to your ears, no matter what format you're viewing this in. You have to see them in real life!

My earrings are born from a violent collision between a hammer, a steel stamp, and a piece of silver. But they'll look fantastic in your ears!

SIZES: Let me know if you'd like this pattern in another size, anywhere from 1 1/4" to 3" across, and I'll quote a price.

PATINAS: I frequently give my pieces a treatment which creates a dark oxidization in the recesses of the design, creating an element of contrast that makes the pattern stand out. However, I have found that the closeup photos necessary for Etsy often show "flaws" in that finish that are not visible or relevant in a real-life situation. Thus, I more often leave it off for photographic purposes. However, most patterns could easily be oxidized if you would prefer that type of contasting finish. Or, I can leave it off if you'd prefer a shinier look. Just let me know when ordering.
