Lots of spiral action in my handmade Sterling Silver Sea Shell earrings. These hammered hoops have graduated swirls and when the light hits them... lots of sparkle and shine! Handmade to order artisan jewelry.

With 20g Sterling Silver wire, I hand form each pair of earrings, hammer, file and finish with a tumble polish.

Approximate measurement:
27mm (around 1") top of wire to bottom of swirl
19mm wide (3/4")
Finish: Bright/Hammered
Quantity: 1 pair (2 pieces)

My metalwork is handmade to order and not kept in stock. Please read my Shop Policies for details. Also, due to my work is entirely handmade, please allow for possible slight variations from the representation photo shown.

Frequently asked questions about RockisArtisanMetal

All of my listings include a detail description of the item, measurements, type of metal, gauge of wire and finish. All of my earrings are created with 20g (for standard ear piercings) and 18g (thicker than 20g).

Photos of jewelry on a ruler show the measurements in centimeters, millimeters and inches.

I take all my photos up close and in natural lighting, but due to computers, cellphones and tablets vary, sizes and colors may appear larger/smaller or lighter/darker than they actually are. Please know that I do my best to describe them as much as possible.
No, sorry I do not model the earrings and most are made to order. However, I do provide photos, measurements, and as much detail as possible in each listing.
No there is not - all the metals I use are nickel-free.
Yes it is. I use:
925 Sterling Silver
14k Gold Filled (Yellow and Rose)
Argentium Silver (highly tarnish resistant & hypoallergenic)
Fine Silver (99.9 pure)
Copper (will patina - darken - naturally in time. I do not use sealants)
I oxidize with LOS (liver of sulfur - I won't bore you with the process details ;). The oxidized/gunmetal is an all over dark finish and the antiqued is oxidized then hand finished to expose most of the silver giving it an aged look.

I can oxidize/antique all the metals I use *except* for 14k Gold Filled.
Inner diameter (ID) is the inside measurement of a hoop ring and outer diameter (OD) is the outside measurement of the hoop ring.
If you’re not sure what diameter size hoop you need and don't have a caliper, you can measure it with a metric ruler. Place the ruler on your nose and measure the distance between the piercing hole and the edge of your nostril, then add a millimeter so that the ring isn’t resting against your nostril. Or you can go to any piercing shop and have them measure for you. The measurement taken will be the inner diameter needed.

I wear an 18g 8mm ID nose hoop, but it depends on how far up your nose piercing is on what works for you – and your preference. I’ve had some customers tell me they like to wear tight fitting nose hoops and others wear bigger diameter hoops.
Most jewelry will eventually tarnish, but with proper care you can keep it looking good for a long time.

- keep jewelry free from chemicals (hair products, chlorine, etc.)
- store in a clean dry compartment (zip bag included)
- *most tarnish can be removed with either store bought products (polishing cloth, etc.) or homemade recipes. Because there are a ton of remedies, I suggest looking online for the applicable cleaner.

*for jewelry that has been oxidized/antiqued, do NOT use any cleaner as that will remove the intended oxidation.

Note: if you are allergic or have sensitivities to certain metals, it will cause the earring and/or piercing to turn black/green. Please consider this before purchasing as the jewelry cannot be returned.
