Item details



Glass, Silver


Length: 2 Inches; Width: 5/8 Inches

These basic silver earrings will go with everything! They are unique because of the cool crosshatching on the discs which contrasts very nicely with the neutral gray beads. The texture was achieved using a rolling mill and some medical netting I came across at work (sterile but destined for the trash). It is such a fine texture that it has a matte satin finish after oxidizing and hand sanding.

Made by a US etsy artisan, I purchased several pairs of these handmade lampwork beads in various seaglass shades to make into a bracelet. LOVE them! I suppose in keeping with the ocean theme, these could be the color of raw ocean-washed beach agate =). I etched and then surrounded the beads with sterling bead caps with a bit of a floral theme and then suspended a lightly textured sterling round, domed disc between the bead and the handforged earwires. I added an iridescent grey Czech bead to the earwires for a surprise bit of sparkle. I've made these off and on for a few years now, and have a couple of pairs (etched and oxidized) in my own personal stash. I just purchased a huge batch of beads from a Canadian artist, and can't wait until they arrive so that I can make more!

They measure about 2" + long from the top of the earwires, and the mill textured discs are 5/8" across. Perfect size for everyday and so lightweight that you won't even feel them on!

All the metal is sterling silver, and every component was handmade by me in my home studio (except the beads and the wire).

An occasional soak in warm soapy water (yes, except for soft/porous stones like turquoise, they are safe for showering, too!) will keep your item looking new, as will daily wear, which inhibits tarnish. For orders $25+ I also include a small polishing cloth which can be used on dry pieces until it is completely black.

For shiny jewelry, I use a silver dip product for polishing. Just dip and then rinse in water. This will not remove black lettering.

If the text lightens (common inside of bracelets), fill in the letters with a Sharpie. Best hack ever! Wipe off the excess ink while it is still wet and sand off remaining residue to make the lettering pop again. I include sanding paper in every stamped bracelet order.
Exact wrist size is important for my bracelets! A 7-inch bracelet only works on a 6.75 inch wrist if it is chain. One with 1-inch beads that is 7" long may only fit a 5" wrist. So please send your exact wrist circumference if you are ordering a bracelet and want to love it a long time!
