Tassel Earrings – where quality, handcrafted jewelry meets fashion.
These are statement earrings for sure, ones that will be noticed when you wear them. The tassels are made from 100% silk – yarn that I intended to knit with. But, I couldn’t stop envisioning the combination of trendy tassels with sterling silver. The yarn has a stone-washed appearance.
I cut the sterling discs from sheet metal and hammered them with a small, ball peen hammer to create the dimpled texture. Then I soldered two small rings to the back of each disc – one for the ear wire, the other for hanging the tassel. Both ear wires are handmade, too.
After construction I placed the earrings in a patina bath, which turned the silver black. Then they went into a rotary tumbler, which left the patina in the recessed areas while brightening the silver on the raised areas.
- Approximately 0.5″ wide x 3″ long from the top of the ear wire
- All sterling silver metal
- Patina with satin finish
- Stamped with .925 on the back of one earring, my maker’s mark on the other
- Available in 2 different colors: River (green-blue), Earth (gray-brown)
Note: the earrings you receive won’t be the exact pair shown in the photos but will be the same design.
