Australian Native Flower Earrings - Banksia.
These earrings are handmade in my studio and feature sterling silver sheppard hooks which are super strong and are made using 1mm thick wire so you'll hopefully never lose an earring again!
Made from recycled Aluminium, these Banksia Earrings are intricately handmade.
Each design starts out from a sketched drawing. It is then transferred to the metal using a template I've traced around and then precisely hand cut using my hand saw and a super fine saw blade. Each piece is then hand stamped using various metal stamps and hammers to add the flowers detail.
Each edge is then filed smooth, a hole drilled and countersunk to remove any burs. All surfaces are then sanded to remove any scratches and polished using various grades to reveal a shiny finish. The sheppard hooks are then added and each pair is given a final hand polishing before they are ready for their new owners.
These earrings measure approximately 70mm tall and 25mm wide and are very light weight.
They come in a natural finish, no added polish or wax has been added to the surface, so the metal will age over time adding to the character and charm.
If you prefer your earrings to maintain a bright shiny appearance you will need to keep cleaning them regularly using Silvo. (See Cleaning Tips for more information.)
