My Earrings are on the Front Page of Etsy Today!

Pin It Organic Hoop Earrings with Carnelian Stones



I have made a series of these "Organic Hoop Earrings" over the past few weeks and am really pleased with them.

I have been wanting to do more with wire and metal and this was a good place to start. I used sterling silver wire to handforge these hoops. I then hammered them for strength and texture. I love the visible bumps and divots in the metal (yes...it was intentional!) On this particular pair I oxidized the metal and brushed the hoops for an antique finish.

Check out some of the other handforged hoops in my shop!
