Fact and Fiction Earrings

from 16.00

When you wander into a library or bookstore, which section do you head towards first? Fact (nonfiction) or fiction? I read both, so this is a difficult question to answer!

To create these dangle earrings, I hand stamped the words "fact" and "fiction" on tin-based metal alloy circles. The word "fact" is stamped in a no-nonsense serif font across the middle, while "fiction" uses a mix of lowercase and uppercase letters in different fonts around the edges. (For me, I’ve always found that facts can hit you squarely head on, while sometimes the truth of fiction creeps into your mind and heart in a roundabout way.)

Ear wires: Sterling silver
Sterling silver ear wires are a little more expensive than silver-plated ear wires but they usually work well for people who have sensitive skin or allergies. Copper circles come with niobium (hypoallergenic) ear wires.

Length: 1 5/8" (4.12 cm)
Earring length is always measured from the top of the ear wire (the part that will be in your ear) to the end of the earring.

Technique: Hand stamped
Hand stamped items uses hand tools (a hammer and steel stamps) to add the letters and numbers one at a time. No lasers or machines! Because of the hand tools, you may notice light hammer marks or a brushed (not smooth) texture on the metal, particularly on the back.

If you would prefer a smooth surface on the back, ask me about creating a wood (not metal) laser engraved piece for you as a custom order.
