16mm sterling silver small hoop earrings | Tiny oxidized black silver hoops
These small sterling silver hoop earrings are handmade, one pair at a time by me in the Pacific Northwest.
They have been oxidized- or tarnished heavily, also called a patina.
They are a matte, flat black, or dark charcoal grey that does not irritate the skin.
If you can wear sterling silver, you can wear these oxidized sterling silver earrings.
SIZE: 16mm exterior, 13mm interior diameter, 4mm wide. and 1.5mm thick.
Solid sterling silver posts and backs.

- SUSTAINABILITY: I make jewelry in small batches, minimizing waste and resources wherever I can. My manufacturing processes strives to strengthen the metal by using hand forming techniques en lieu of casting processes.
I strive to purchase metals from manufacturers that use post consumer recycled content and metals from fair labor practicing mines I believe that purchasing high quality jewelry that is repairable and recyclable is very important.
I use either solid gold or bimetal in my gold jewelry.To manufacture bimetal, a sheet of 22k gold is fused with sterling silver. The result is repairable, easily recyclable and avoids the use of cyanide solutions required for plating.
