Snippets - mini threader earrings in sterling, copper, or gold fill on sterling wires - made to order
What to do with those little odd-shaped scraps of sheet metal that are left from cutting out larger pieces? They're just the perfect source for these delicate earrings.
Hand-cut, edges filed smooth, hammered for light-catching texture, these are made without a specific pattern in mind, so each pair is not exactly like the next. In fact, the shapes and sizes vary slightly from one earring to the next within each pair. Each shape is then soldered to a hand-forged sterling ear wire, squared at the top and with an elongated tail, measuring approximately 1 and 1/2 to 1 and 3/4 inches.
Choose from sterling, 14/20 gold fill or copper snippets on sterling wires. The earrings you receive will be similar, but not identical, to the pair pictured.
