Sterling Silver Sand Dune Earrings
These reticulated sterling silver studs are perfect for every day wear. Their rippled surface reminds me of Michigan's great sand dunes, and the ripples in the sand as it nears the shore. Sterling silver post, with a nickel-free wing back. Approximately 1/4" circles.
Reticulated silver is created by heating and cooling the metal repeatedly, so that the other 7.5% of sterling silver cools at a different rate. This creates the many ridges and bumps in the metal. Science is cool.
