SS Oneness Earrings
"Better than a thousand hollow words, is one word that brings peace." The Buddha
How we choose our words is so important. I was walking down the street with a friend this winter and I was talking about a worry I had regarding a relative. My friend told me not to speak the worry into existance, and that I was keeping myself in turmoil based on an imagination. And an unpleasant one at that!
He was right. The words we speak to others and to ourselves are often quite numerous and without peaceful intentions. I found The Buddha's quote serendiptously about 24 hours later, and worked on expressing oneness in these earrings.
These are made out of sterling silver wire with an Argentium dangle in the middle. The ear wires are sterling silver and these have been finished with a soft matte polish.
These are about 1.30 inches in length, including the ear wire, and 1/2" inch wide.
This design is made to order. Currently my turnaround time is 3 BUSINESS DAYS after the order is placed. I do not work in my studio on weekends, so please take that into account to estimate ship time. I ship USPS First Class and your jewelry will arrive in a box wrapped ready for gifting to yourself or the lucky someone you purchased it for!
I stamp my jewelry with my makers mark "sflorer" depending on whether or not there is room on the design, and if it is 100% sterling silver it will be stamped with a .925 stamp if I can. Some designs that are made from all wire or very narrow I am unable to stamp.
Everything is made by hand by me in my studio in downtown Roanoke, Virginia. I use traditional metalsmithing techniques along with a few techniques I've discovered in my polishing process. My finishing technique gives the high quality sterling silver a soft, semi-matte look that is very comfortable and strikingly organic to wear.
