Acorn Bolt Stud Earrings, Bronze or Sterling Silver
Subtlely edgy, these earrings are cast from a real petite acorn bolt. I've soldered a sterling silver post (with sterling backings) to the backs. The small size makes them great for everyday wear.
I've cast them in solid nickel-free bronze and sterling silver using lost-wax casting. I start with a wax model, and then a plaster mold is made from the wax. Liquid metal is poured into the mold and heated in a kiln to create the final product, which is then tumbled, tumbled, and tumbled again, and polished to bring out the shine.
The earrings measure 5/16" in diameter. Available now in bronze and sterling silver.
