How it's made:
Our one-of-a-kind metal texture is created by a metalsmithing process called fusing. Each piece of sterling silver is hand-cut and carefully placed with tweezers onto a sterling silver base. Then with a little magic, a little luck, intense concentration and careful torch control, the piece is heated just before it completely melts. It's at this point that the pieces fuse to the base. This creates a unique look but also provides superior durability and texture to the piece. Next, 22K gold was cut and soldered into place. The final steps involve traditional metalsmithing techniques to finish the earrings.
