Copper Texture Flower Stud
Copper, also known as "the red metal", is a great conductor of heat with ductile, malleable properties which makes it great for jewelrymaking. These unique little studs were handmade out of raw copper material!
First the surface of copper was imprinted with a textured surface. Next I handsaw the floral 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.
