Each piece of these earrings were hand fabricated from sterling silver sheet with the exception of the bezel setting and ear wires. 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 flower was cut with an even finer blade. After sanding the edges smooth, the flowers were given a domed, 3D shape then soldered onto the teardrop. A 4mm fine silver bezel cup was also soldered into the center of each flower. 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 light patina so the underside of the flower contrasts. A brushed finish was given to the teardrop and a higher shine to the inside of the flower. Finally, 4mm amethyst cabochons were set in the bezel cups. The overall finish is a shiny, brushed look, with contrasting components. 

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

Overall length is approximately 2". These are slightly heavier so they're not recommended for sensitive ears.
