Olive Jade and Sterling Silver Etched Earrings

Olive Jade and Sterling Silver Etched Earrings

This is a beautiful combination of sterling silver and Olive jade. The Olive Jade just sings with the silver. The Discs are created by me from sheet Sterling Silver. First the silver was etched, then cut to shape and then domed slightly using a hammer. Finally holes were drilled and they were given a very slight patina to highlight the etched design. The discs are hung from handcrafted earwires and the beads attached to them using wrapped sterling silver wire. Each disc measures approximately .7" (1.6cm) in diameter and the drop of the earring measures approximately 1" (2.5cm) from the base of the ear wire.
