These earrings feature texture from Aspen leaves. The texture has been transferred to the silver, using a process called “roller printing”. They hang from a long ear wire, attached directly to the leaf and adorned with a single silver sphere at the tip. This is a tidy earring, with not a lot of movement. The leaves feature a few slight notches for added character. They are treated with a touch of patina to enhance the texture, then polished to a crisp shine.
These earrings are made of Argentium silver. What is Argentium silver? It is a wonderful alloy of silver, with a slightly higher karat than traditional sterling silver. It includes a bit of germanium which gives it lovely properties. It fuses to itself, when heated to the right temperature which means that pieces can be constructed without the use of solder. It is also a tarnish resistant silver, so you won’t have to worry about keeping them looking great. Lastly, Argentium silver is hypoallergenic and will not react with skin; this is a huge benefit for those who have metal sensitivities.
Dimensions: The earrings measure just under 1 inch across at the widest spot and hang at a total length of just under 1 1/2 inches, from where the earring inserts into your lobe.
