Sterling Silver Post Style Button Earrings These classic style earrings are made completely from sterling silver sheet.  I have textured and hand cut 5/8" rounds of sheet, domed these discs, and then soldered them to a flat sheet of sterling.  The earrings have been carefully sanded smooth along the edges by hand, and a sterling silver post is soldered to the back. These are so very comfortable to wear all day long! A sterling silver ear clutch is included for secure closure.

I have lightly darkened the sterling silver, hand buffed, and tumbled for extra strength and shine.  The earrings measure  just over 1/2" round (.525 inches).

It was quite the process photographing these earrings!  Shiny sterling silver reflects EVERYTHING! :)

NOTE: These are lightweight, hollow form earrings. You may notice a tiny hole has been drilled to the back of the earring.  This is a necessary "escape hatch" for the steam created during the soldering process.

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.
