Little Ovals - dangling hoop earrings in bright or oxidized sterling, 14K gold-fill or copper - made to order


I just love making these earrings in various sizes, but I think the little ovals are my favorite. I form each not-quite-round hoop by hand, then solder and hammer and polish them, which gives them a very organic feel. These are hung from hand-forged shepherd's hook wires with elongated tails, which I think gives them that little extra something.

Choose all one metal (shown above in all bright sterling), or mix it up with any combination of sterling silver, oxidized sterling, 14K gold-fill or copper (other metal examples shown in the link at the bottom of this listing).

Little Ovals measure approximately 5/8 of an inch across and hang to about 1 inch below the top of the ear wire, although both the dimensions and the texture may vary slightly from one pair to the next.

Made-to-order items will usually arrive at your door in 1 to 2 weeks.
