Do you love to write poetry? These clever earrings make a fun accessory for a poet with a love of rhyme and a sense of humor.
To create them, I hand stamped the words "poet" and "know it" on metal alloy circles. I brushed the metal discs to give them a subtle texture. The discs are made with a tin-based metal alloy that is heavier than aluminum.
Ear wires: Sterling silver
Sterling silver ear wires are a little more expensive than silver-plated, but they usually work better for those with sensitive skin or allergies.
Length: 1 5/8" (4.12 cm)
Earring length is always measured from the top of the ear wire (the part that will be in your ear) to the end of the earring.
Technique: Hand stamped
Hand stamped items uses hand tools (a hammer and steel stamps) to add the letters and numbers one at a time. No lasers or machines! Because of the hand tools, you may notice light hammer marks or a brushed (not smooth) texture on the metal, particularly on the back.
If you would prefer a smooth surface on the back, ask me about creating a wood (not metal) laser engraved piece for you as a custom order.
