Little Hoops

Originally uploaded by esjewelry

I've been making some hand-forged sterling silver hoops in various sizes. My favorite is this one, the smallest. It takes a surprising amount of detailed work to make these- rounding the ends, making the thickness at the curve just right (and matching exactly on each.) Then they go into the tumbler for polishing. This also gives them extra strength and hardness so they keep their shape.

Also new is my mailing list. There are only a couple of names on it, so please sign up! I won't share addresses, and will send just one message a month (starting in February.) Each message will include a special offer which can be redeemed at my Etsy shop- an extra item with purchase or a discount on a certain item.
