Hand forged, drilled, soldered and hammered....One of a kind.

Simple modernist hoop earrings with barbed wire inspired elements to help float those beach stones in the middle of the riveted bars. Hand formed and hammered sterling hoops.

Technique: 
Each sterling silver wire is hand formed and hammered.
Each sterling silver ear wire on these earrings has been soldered for strength and stability. 
Hand forged sterling hoops with riveted bars soldered in place. Hand formed barbed wire copper elements.  
I hand drilled beach stones that I rock hounded near the Central Coast of California. 
I added a patina to highlight the textures of the hammered metal.
