Faux Bone Amulet Sterling Silver Hoop Earrings
Amulet earrings in sterling silver. Every element of these earrings is constucted by my hand. The amulets are carved from a lightweight manmade material known as "faux bone", which is available in sheets. The shapes have been carved out, sanded, rounded, drilled, and scraped up - and then painted with various inks, and studded with rivets. Then the surface is sanded and polished some more. The resulting amulets resemble ancient tribal carved bone. I've set each in custom handmade sterling silver looped caps and suspended them from hammered handmade sterling silvet hoops. Designs are in both sides. The hoops are 1 1/2" in diameter. The amulets are approx 1" tall and 1 1/4" wide. Very lightweight!
