These silver drop earrings have an arc of forged silver with a blue sodalite bead inside. The bead rotates on a little forged pin. I have added a lovely shimmery hammered texture to the silver arc. They hang from handmade ear wires that are soldered in place to the top of the earring.
The blue sodalite beads have lovely flecks of white, light and dark denim blue running through them.

Sodalite drop earrings
About Argentium® Silver
* Argentium® is less prone to tarnish than sterling silver.
* It has a higher fine silver content (93.5% or 96.5%).
* The silver is 100% recycled.
* It's less likely to cause irritation to sensitive skin.
For this reason I now make all the ear wires and ear pins on my earrings from Argentium® silver.
