Small gold dangle earrings with solid 18k gold ear wires | Round, handmade, yellow gold earrings
These gold dangle earrings are handmade by me in the beautiful Pacific Northwest of the USA .
I punch the holes by hand in each one. Light shimmers through them as they swing.
Solid 18k gold hooks,
Available for $100 less with oxidized black silver hooks shown in last model photo.
I only work with solid silver and gold. The sheet I use in these earrings is manufactured by fusing a sheet of 22k gold and sterling silver together. This coin like sheet is called " bimetal".
Bimetal is a very durable, repairable, and recyclable material that avoids the use of the acidic cyanide solutions needed for gold plating.
For more about bimetal in 22k, see http://hausermiller.com/fab/bimetal.html- this is where I purchase it from. This company uses up to 90% post consumer recycled gold.
The back side is oxidized black.
Because my jewelry is made using hand fabrication processes, it has lightness, durability and detail unachievable via mass production.
I strive to run an ecologically sustainable business.

I believe that purchasing high quality jewelry with a post consumer content that is repairable and recyclable is very important.
I make jewelry in small batches, minimizing waste and minimizing resources wherever I can. My manufacturing processes strive to strengthen the metal by using hand forming techniques en lieu of casting processes.
