Shepherd's Run Jewelry
Looking for a modern, sleek earring with a little edge? These are from my Aurora series- simple handformed argentium silver ovals accented by (in this case) two dots. These dots can be a simple adornment, or as has proven the case for some of my clients, a signifier of something important- a child or loved one or a moment in time. Each oval is formed, fused, then the dot accent is added and fused, the unit is textured with one of my favorite hammers and then the earwires are soldered on- a polish and they're ready to go!
These studs are approximately 1 3/4" high and 1/2" wide.
Argentium silver is similar to sterling but actually has a higher fine silver content and less copper, so won't tarnish as readily. Just an occasional wipe with a polishing cloth will keep these as bright as the day they were made!
