These studs are made from fine silver, with a sterling silver post and backing. They are thin and delicate, made to imitate fabric. As fabric is malleable, these earrings are also malleable if too much pressure is applied to them.
Fine silver is even more precious than sterling silver with 99.9% purity. These earrings should be handled like the precious objects they are.
Materials: Fine silver, sterling silver
Dimensions: L) 17mm x W) 5mm
Meet the Maker: Nicola Knackstredt discovered silversmithing as an adult, and stepped away from a career as a human rights lawyer to pursue her interest. She studied Gold & Silversmithing at the Australian National University in Canberra, where she was recognised for excellence in gold and silversmithing in her first year of studies. Nicola has since turned her interest into a business.
