Copper Texture Domed Stud
First the surface of copper was imprinted with a textured surface. Next I handsaw the shape of each stud, then carefully domed and shaped them. After sterling silver multi notched posts, to help secure a snug fit with the sterling butterfly ear nut backs, were added the back of each shape. Lastly the studs were oxidized and sanded back to allow the textured pattern to pop out.
Copper is generally a gift given as a 7th anniversary in the United States. These studs would make a perfect anniversary gift or personal gift in geral.
