Silver Blade Hoops
These Silver Blade Hoops are sold individually to give you the flexibility to have one, a pair or more if you have multiple piercings. They are an ancient kind of earring archaeologists have found examples at sites all over the world. This style of earring will add a real edge to your look. I Hand forged thse Silver Blade Hoops in sterling silver with a gorgeous hammered texture and crackling down the sides. Then I blackened the silver and gave them a burnish polish for a high shine while retaining the textural detail.
Inspired by Music and My Synaesthesia
I am synaesthetic which is a neurological trait where my senses cross. Therefore I have a strong visual impression of shape, colour, movement and sometimes texture when I hear music. These Silver Blade Hoops are directly inspired by what I see when I listen to electric guitar. Electric guitar looks silver to me, like lightning made of mercury. As a result, the textures in these Silver Blade Hoops reflect electric guitar playing made visible by my synaesthesia.
I individually make every piece of my jewellery, for more about how I do that read this: Four Ways, I Invite Chaos into My Creative Process Eliminating Failure and Making My Jewellery More Authentic as a Result.
What Is It Made Of?
Mining silver is an environmentally invasive process, so I use recycled silver in all my work. The sterling silver I used to make these Silver Blade Hoops comes from old and broken silverware and cutlery. Consequently, I can eliminate the need for newly mined silver in my work. I melted a piece of old silverware down. Then I hand forged the resulting ingot of molten silver into these Silver Blade Hoops.
