Fine Silver, Freshwater Pearl and Sterling Silver Earrings
These earrings feature a pretty botanical design!
The focal of each earring is a hand stamped Fine Silver* Marquis charm (5/8" x 1/4"). These charms were made from Precious Metal Clay (PMC). Following a multi-stage process, the clay was fired in a kiln at very high temparatures. The resulting Fine or Pure (99.99% pure silver) silver charms were polished, antiqued and polished again.
The charms sway beneath a combination of sterling silver elements and a creamy Freshwater Pearl. The dangles are suspended from sterling silver Leverback ear wires.
These very lightweight earrings are approximately 17/8" long.
*Fine silver is 99.9% pure silver. Precious Metal Clay is comprised of fine silver particles that are in a binder which burns away when fired in a kiln leaving only pure silver behind. This metal is gorgeous, and it is more resistant to tarnishing than sterling silver.
