50mm large 22k gold hoop earrings

Regular price $550.00

Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

These large gold hoop earrings are handmade by me in the beautiful Pacific Northwest of North America.

Size is 50mm diameter, 5mm wide, .75 mm thick.

The locking backs and posts are also solid 18k gold.

The sheet I use in these earrings is manufactured by fusing a sheet of 22k gold and sterling silver together.

This sheet is called " bimetal" and the silver side is oxidized black by treating it with sulfur.

Bimetal is very durable, easily repairable, and recyclable.

Bimetal avoids the use of toxic, wasteful processes needed for plating gold over cheaper metals.

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.

- 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 resources wherever I can. My manufacturing process strives to strengthen the metal by using hand forming techniques en lieu of casting processes.

Materials: Gold, Silver.
