Handmade Sterling Silver Earrings

Made from *Argentium Sterling Silver all the links have been hand formed by me, fused closed by me and then tumbled for strength and shine. And then, finally, all the links are assembled into jewellery by me. All in all a timely process.

Square links ranging in size from 9mm to 16mm are joined together in a swingy arrangement. From top to bottom they are 2" long.





Now these are cool! Oval links joined together to make a long slim dangle. From the top of the leverbacks to the bottom link these are 2¼" long.





A shorter vision of the earrings above, these hang 1½" from top to bottom.






All Gracie Jewellery is handmade in my smoke and pet-free home studio. Each piece arrives in its own storage pouch. Gracie Jewellery is available in my shop.

*Argentium Sterling Silver is sterling silver with less of the copper alloy. Copper is what makes sterling silver tarnish. Argentium is 92.5% pure silver with the balance a mix of germanium and copper. This makes Argentium silver harder, brighter and more highly tarnish resistant than traditional sterling silver. While Argentium silver is a bit more expensive than traditional sterling silver, it is well worth it.

    Thank you so much for the shout out for Pink Saturday! Unfortunately my back went out on me, so I wasn't able to get a post together. I really appreciate it though, and I'll be back this Saturday with some pinks from my kitchen. See you then!
