You will love this showy, contemporary earring. It begins with texture from Ginkgo leaves, roller printed onto Argentium silver. The fan-shaped, textured pieces hang from a circle of silver, ornamented with silver spheres. A patina has been used to darken the recesses and enhance the texture. Lastly, they are polished to a crisp shine, and attached to handmade Argentium silver ear wires.
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 about 1 ¼ inch across at the widest spot and hang at a total length of just under 1 ½ inches, from where the earring inserts into your lobe.
