These are Hand forged sterling silver earrings.
I use sterling sheet metal and a steel die, pressing using a 20 ton hydraulic press.
Many of the dies I use are from the early 1900s.
This is called ‘Die Struck’ jewelry and becoming a lost art due to the time intensive nature to product. The process lends itself to a very strong, and long lasting piece of jewelry. I have more information about this process on my website.
I also hand set all of my own stones on items that have gemstones!
