These gold dangle earrings are handmade by me in the beautiful Pacific Northwest of North America.
SIZE: 1" / 18mm diameter
Solid, handmade, 18k gold ear hooks.
Light shimmers through the holes as they swing, wiggle and sparkle.
I strive to run an ecologically sustainable business.
Because my jewelry is made using hand fabrication processes, it has lightness, durability and detail unachievable via mass production. These finely crafted earrings will be enjoyed for years to come.

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.

- SUSTAINABILITY: I use silver and gold with a 50- 90% post consumer content from Hauser and Miller, precious metals manufacturer since 1909. They purchase from fair labor practicing mines.
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.
