Description
 
Each of the teeny roses measures less than 1/4-inch/.5cm wide (please see 2nd photo for the sizing reference.) I have soldered them onto sterling silver earring posts with butterfly backings.

My Design Process:

I form each rose by hand - petal by petal - without the use of molds. I make the roses with fine silver precious metal clay (.999% silver content, versus .925% as found in sterling silver.) The whole process is all done by hand from start to finish: the roses are formed, dried, and then fired in a kiln. I then go through the process of burnishing, oxidizing, buffing and polishing.

I have intentionally oxidized (darkened) the earrings in some areas to bring out the texture and depth of the silver. Please note that silver will continue to oxidize over time, with exposure to air, liquid, chemicals, etc. You can use a soft polishing cloth or silver polish paste to touch up your earrings.
