Small 22k gold stud earrings
These small gold stud earrings are handmade by me, one pair at a time, in the beautiful pacific northwest of North America.
The sheet I use in these earrings is manufactured by fusing sheets 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.
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.
5mm x 5mm and .75 mm thick.
Posts and backs are solid sterling silver and 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 earrings.
- GUARANTEED forever against breakage due to normal use.
- RETURNS- Contact me ASAP if you are not happy with your order. Your happiness is my main goal! I will accept returns for a full refund, minus shipping costs, if it is shipped back to me within 7 days of receipt by you. (longer for international orders, of course)
- 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 processes strives to strengthen the metal by using hand forming techniques en lieu of casting processes.
Materials: Silver, Gold.
