Loop in Loop
Made to Order Rustic Sterling silver hoop earrings are layered in edgy forged loops fused together for a permanent join. The imperfect and highly textured silver shows a layering in the sterling made from combining layers of silver together and heating them until there is a fuse and then backing away the torch. The forming and coiling happens on steel forming stakes until the spiraled circles are imperfectly perfect.
Rugged links were forged and fused together to provide a little shine and hammered texture was added to the loops for the perfect amount of movement, length and lightweight fun. Note: these sterling silver hoop earrings are intentionally asymmetrical, but overall the earrings are the same length.
These sterling silver hoop earrings feature forged and embossed textures for the modern warrior. Contemporary lines with an edgy vibe. Hand forged silver hoop with just the right amount of rough elegance. Dressy and rustic, empowering and a touch of badassery.
From top of ear wires, these measure 2.5” in length, with the largest loop measuring 1.8 inches in diameter. These are completely hand fabricated from sterling silver (recycled) and fine silver and are made in my one person shop in Atlanta, GA USA.
Note from the Artist
I make these sterling silver hoop earrings entirely by hand. I’m fascinated with the textures created by combining fusing, granulation, and forging. Each piece on my workbench is special, but with Loop in Loop I am inspired by the layers of experience that give us strength in our daily lives.
Every experience we have shapes our nature, giving us the strength to achieve our wildest dreams, to overcome unexpected setbacks, and to endure life’s toughest conflicts. Overcoming obstacles and achieving long held dreams, our life is a montage of defining moments conquered and memories claimed.
Probably one of the most rewarding things to create is handmade texture- and the texture in Loop in Loop is no exception. I always approach the creation of texture a bit like a mad scientist. The alchemy of fire, force, and metal is unpredictable and enthralling. Each hammer blow shapes the metal in a new direction. Each pass of a torch runs the risk of artistic implosion, where the metal could sink into a formless mass once more. The thrill of creation is echoed in the rush of artistic freedom with every moment, until the final texture is achieved.
I hope you enjoy this Loop in Loop.
