Button earrings in Argentium silver with peridots, in snowflake granulation design.
These earrings remind me of the crystalline patterns of snowflakes, each one unique but all lovely in their pure geometric symmetry. In the center of each one is a bright green peridot, a stone that forms in the fire of volcanoes and sometimes, meteorites.
I made these earrings from a disc that I textured and then overlaid with wirework and granulation, with a hammered circle to tie it all together. With the sparkle of the silver and the lively peridot, these earrings are eye-catching and special.
These are post earrings, finished on the back so they look good from all sides.
They are 3/4 inch across and about 1/4 inch thick, hollow so they are light, with comfort-fit backs so they are balanced and easy to wear. The peridot are each 5 mm.
