These unique earrings are made using Argentium Sterling Silver and Carnelian. Argentium Sterling Silver is an awesome type of sterling silver which contains the element geranium. This allows the granules to fuse to the metal when heated, which creates a stronger bond than soldering. It also allows the parts of the silver that doesn't have patina to darken stay light, vibrant, and silver. I patinaed part of the silver, while polishing and leaving the granules and bezel around the stones shiny to give depth and also help the pattern stand out. This are the kind of earring that can be made so many different times, each time totally different, with shapes, pattern of ball placement, stones, or without stones.
