Sterling Silver Hand Forged Leaf Earrings with Sleeping Beauty Turquoise

in: Earrings



Sterling Silver Hand Forged Leaf Earrings with Sleeping Beauty Turquoise This is a sweet pair of earrings made from sterling silver sheet and wire. The leaf shapes were hand cut, and the veining has been hand stamped on each leaf shape. The midrib has been soldered to the center, then curved into a tendril shape at the top of the leaf. The leaves are suspended by a sterling silver ring, and they swing beautifully when worn!

I added a slight concave curve to the leaves, and then added a beautiful blue 5mm Sleeping Beauty Turquoise to each leaf.  The earrings were darkened and tumbled for hours to achieve a gorgeous, soft, rich matte patina. 

The earrings measure just under 2 3/8" in length from the top of the sterling silver ear wires to the bottom of the earrings. These one of a kind earrings are very lightweight, and easy to wear from daylight into sundown!

All metals used in this design are .925 sterling silver.

Jewelry is made using traditional metalworking techniques, including soldering, filing, sanding, texturing, polishing, and tumbling in my home studio. Jewelry comes wrapped in a cotton-lined gift box and ships quickly. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
