Small Samara Silver Earrings
Tiny maple samaras were collected in the spring and pressed into fine silver clay to make these truly unique earrings. Sterling silver ear wires have been soldered to the back of the earring. The earrings have been dipped in an oxidizing agent and hand polished to bring out the wonderful details.
Length is 1 1/4 inches by 3/8 inch wide.

Fine silver clay consists of fine silver particles and an organic binder. After forming, drying and refining the piece is fired in a kiln. During this time the binder burns off and the result is a piece that is .999 pure silver.
