Hand Forged Sterling Silver Hoops with Red Agate Earrings

Sterling silver hoops with wrapped semi-precious red Agate gemstone. Hand forged, exotic materials and ethnic in style; these cute little earrings have a strong tribal chic appeal. Though black, the hoops are actually sterling silver. Using a method called oxidation I treated the silver so it blackens so creating a gothic effect that compliments the hand forged look of the hammered silver. The little red agate stones have been frosted or tumbled, much like stones on a beach, to create a matt, veined effect. Red and black, dark and passionate, this is jewellery for grown-ups.

    Hand Forged Sterling Silver Hoops with Red Agate

    Sterling silver hoops with wrapped semi-precious red Agate gemstone. Hand made from start to finish these little black hoops hide a secret: they’re actually sterling silver. There’s a time to shine and a time to suggest and personally I love the deep rich colour of oxidised silver. Because the hoops have been hammered to lend them texture, the dips and hollows capture the light and give a much more subtle sheen than polished silver.

    The little red agate stones have been frosted or tumbled, much like stones on a beach, to create a matt effect that exposes the natural veins in the stones. These are then filled with white plaster thus creating a beautiful marbled look similar to glazed pottery. These earrings are all about texture and colour; the contrasts between them and the natural qualities of the materials themselves.

    The hooks too have been hand forged using sterling silver wire. Though black they are fixed so the black won’t rub off onto the ear. The earrings measure 3.5 cm or 1.5 inches from the base of the hooks. Please note: these earrings are handmade with natural materials so your earrings may vary ever so slightly from the photograph.

    Come presented in a lovely gift box tied with ribbon all ready to gift or better still to keep.

      Love these earrings, not too big for daytime use, the hoop fits my little finger. They coordinate well with the Hematite Hearts necklace.
