Two teeny tiny, handcrafted, fine silver bumble bees hang from hand forged sterling silver ear wires to create these dainty drop earrings.

The cute little bees are pure 99.9% solid silver (also known as "fine silver"), handcrafted by me using precious metal clay (see below for more info about fine silver and silver clay) and set on a pair of my own handmade sterling silver ear wires.


DETAILS AND MEASUREMENTS:

  • Handmade to order and ready to ship in 3-5 working days.
  • Bees are .999 fine silver and measure 9mm (3/8th of an inch) wide.
  • Ear wires are .925 sterling silver and measure approximately 15mm (just over 1/2 inch) from top to tip.
  • Earrings measure approximately 18mm (3/4 inch) from top of wire to base of bee.
  • Earrings will ship in a little Tiny Tree Frog gift box.
  • Flat rate shipping - additional items ship at no extra cost.
The little bees are handmade by me using eco friendly silver clay (see below for more information about silver clay). The clay is pressed into my own handmade bee mould then dried, sanded, drilled and kiln fired, before being barrel polished in a tumbler to a high shine. The bees are then set on a pair of my own handcrafted sterling silver ear wires.

WHAT IS FINE SILVER/SILVER CLAY?

Fine silver is made from precious metal silver clay, which looks and feels like regular sculpting clay but contains fine particles of pure silver mixed with a non-toxic organic binder. It is eco-friendly since the silver particles are recycled silver reclaimed from medical, scientific and communications equipment.

Once the clay is fired in the kiln, the binder burns away leaving a fine silver piece which is 99.9% pure silver (compared to sterling silver which is only 92.5% pure silver, the remainder being mainly copper).

Fine silver contains no other metals. It is tarnish resistant and, due to its purity, it is less likely to cause any reactions on the skin.

Fine silver pieces can be hallmarked at the Assay Office if they weigh more than 7.78 grams. Since my jewellery pieces are below this weight, I choose not to have them hallmarked.
