These earrings are layers of fused sterling silver with 14k gold accents. The beads are handmade (by Tammy Rae Wolter https://www.tammyrae.com) and are stunning! They are orange and white and yellow swirls.
I get my stone materials and cut, shape and polish them myself. I procure the gold or silver metal flat or as rolled wire or tubes and use it to shape and create my designs. These earrings are the rare exception – the beads were made for me.
Hand-crafted art/jewelry are one-of-a-kind pieces and generally are not duplicated exactly. Stones vary, measurements vary. I can collaborate with you if you would like to have a piece made for you or for someone else. Sterling silver may be polished with any number of good silver cleaner/polish products. Natural stones are fragile and may break if dropped, heated directly, stepped on, etc. Care should be taken.
