Each piece of these earrings were hand fabricated from sterling silver sheet. Starting with a sheet of 22 gauge, each teardrop was laid out and cut with a fine jeweler's saw. The edges were filed and sanded smooth. Next, each state was cut with an even finer blade from 24 gauge sterling silver sheet. After sanding the edges smooth, the states were soldered onto the teardrop. A hole was drilled into the top of each teardrop and 19 gauge sterling silver wire was formed into a hook style ear wire with soldered closed loops. These were then given a black patina and tumbled for a brushed finish, leaving the outlines darkened. The final phase was a polish in a high shine media to further contrast the outline. The overall finish is a shiny, brushed look. 

Backs are stamped .925 and maker, Amy Bumgardner's, initials to certify purity. 

Overall length is approximately 2.25"

These are the last of this style until Fall 2019.
