I did this earring in a favorite bead, violet opal, accented with a faceted rondelle in a mix of blue and violet. The Tierra Cast silver is top quality and the lever back ear wires will keep them secure. The length is 1 1/4 inches. Lovely color.

Frequently asked questions about Cigarboxearrings

12 gauge is the thickest wire and 28 gauge is the thinnest.
Most metals can be cleaned in an ultrasonic device, but be cautious about the plating on antiqued caps.
Any earring can be done in another color bead or metal. The caps may not be identical but they will be close. Please ask for what ever you want. Any earring can have a matching pendant made.
I don't offer gift wrapping formally, but will do my best to accommodate if needed. I will often include a small note card at the customer's request for gifts.
I buy from wholesalers and am not one myself, so don't offer this on supplies. I do offer a wholesale discount on jewelry. Please contact me for details.
20 Gauge half hard is best for ear wires. Don't use plated for this application. Half hard is firm and will hold a shape. Dead soft is very pliable and will not hold a shape unless wrapped.
Tumbling is the best way to clean solid, bare wires. Do not tumble plated wires. Brass, copper or silver cleaner can be used. Be sure to rinse and dry thoroughly.
I use Jax silver blackener for my silver. I also use jax for brass and copper. Do not use these products on plated wires. You can then use a buffing block to highlight your piece.
This is the most challenging of all the aspects of online selling. Whatever camera you use, try to use fine zoom and the macro setting for close ups. Use a light tent if you have one or a southern exposure window about 2 pm. No glare then.
