The earrings are beautiful. However, the posts are very soft and it's hard to put the back on without bending the post.

Mold Maker and Metal Caster
Manhattan, NY, United States
I have been using the same metal caster for a number of years. My caster takes my original wax designs and makes a silicone mold and the metal castings for me. I bring the raw metal castings back to my studio and clean the metal up to be worn.
Gold Plating Service
Manhattan, NY, United States
I use a gold plating service in Manhattan that plates some of my jewelry in different colors of metal, such as gold, rose gold and gunmetal.
I believe in supporting local merchants and suppliers and have all of my castings made in New York City.

To clean tarnished sterling silver or gold filled/rose gold filled, please use Brilliant Polishing Cloth or tooth paste and a soft brush.
BRASS is a zinc/copper alloy golden-yellow in color. The finish on new, raw brass pieces will glow beautifully, though will patina to a deeper color over time. Avoiding contact with lotions, oils, humidity, and sweat will help to keep brass bright, & storing jewelry in a zip-lock will help to maintain its finish. Jewelry polishing cloths are fantastic for brass and in a pinch, ketchup on a soft rag or a bit of baking soda paste are also great for shining up brass.
14K GOLD-FILL is made with a substantial layer of gold (1/20 t.w.) bonded to a base metal core using heat & pressure. The gold is so thick, it can be soldered and handled similarly to solid metals. Gold-fill acts, feels, & looks just like 14k gold. 14k gold filled, gold filled is not plated, it is a tube of solid 14K gold that is then filled with jeweler's brass. it is hard wearing. will not tarnish, crack, chip, peel, or turn your skin green. With reasonable care it will not peel or flake, It is safe for most people with sensitive skin.
HANDMADE & PROFESSIONALLY-PLATED each piece is meticulously made by hand, before being plated by professionals with a long history of working with artisans. This is not the "gold flash" plating you might think of. Instead, each piece is finished with a minimum of 1 micron of fine gold. I'll stand by the quality of this plating, & will offer to re-plate should that ever be required of your piece.
