Inspired by a pomegranate these circle studs look like a cluster of seeds.These studs are the perfect size to fill the entire earlobe and I’ve designed them with a small circle frame that holds little granulation balls.
I love what seeds represent - hope, new life, a fresh start.
They are cast from my original design in solid sterling silver and include sturdy solid sterling silver butterfly backs as well.
I create each pair of earrings in my home studio located in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
Small Pomegranate Stud Earrings
♢ Solid sterling silver studs and butterfly style ear backings.
♢ To create this pair of studs I started by constructing a master from solid argentium silver, forming the circle from silver wire by hand and melting the silver into little balls. When the master was perfect I had a mold made and cast it into solid sterling silver. This way I can make an exact matching pair for earrings like these, or with earwires.
♢ I have also applied a dark patina to the recessed areas to create a beautiful contrast. The contrast between the shiny bright white polished surface and the dark harder to reach area is what sterling silver is famous for!
