Fine silver wire has been wrapped around a dowel for shaping, then cut and torched to fuse the wire together and when the metal is still soft, it is shaped again by hand and hammered with varying tools to create different textures.
The middle link is twisted argentium wire that has also been cut and fused together by torching. All links lastly went into a tumbler with steel shot to harden the metal and create beautiful shine. All metal is anti-tarnish and hanging from a sterling silver silver ear wire.
Total length of earring from top of ear wire - approx. 2 1/2 in
