Small 22k gold dangle earrings with solid 18k gold ear wires
These gold dangle earrings are handmade by me in the beautiful Pacific Northwest of the USA .
Solid 18k gold hooks
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 easily recyclable.
Bimetal avoids the use of toxic and wasteful processes needed for plating gold over cheaper metals.

I strive to run an ecologically sustainable business.
Available for $100 less with oxidized black silver hooks shown in last model photo.
Light shimmers through the holes as they swing, wiggle and sparkle.
Because my jewelry is made using hand fabrication processes, it has lightness, durability and detail unachievable via mass production.
The back side is oxidized black.
- SIZE: 16mm diameter
- 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 minimizing resources wherever I can. My manufacturing processes strive to strengthen the metal by using hand forming techniques en lieu of casting processes.
