Hammered circle earrings
New in the shop - the first of my metalsmithing pieces!
These are "Audrey" from As You Like It (hey, that's a fitting name provenance!) featuring a pair of hand-forged sterling silver circles, subsequently soldered, hammered, and polished.
I debated using my brand new tumbler that I am dying to try out, but as these are smaller pieces I couldn't justify doing the whole elaborate set-up that is required. I also wanted to practice finishing pieces by hand. So, I will save the tumbling for when I have more pieces completed.
Audrey is now available!
