Sterling Silver Textured Earrings
Make three pairs of earrings with different textured surfaces including roller printing and hammering. Roller-printing involves pressing a textured material, be it silk, lace, sand paper or fly-wire into a metal's surface. This is done by rolling the metal and material through a rolling mill. Even the tiniest and most delicate detail can create impressive results. Hammering silver will result in different textures depending on the hammers used. Oxidisation can also be used to create a beautiful contrast with sterling silver that has been hammered and roller-printed.
Make your earrings with your own design.
No previous jewellery making skills are required, so no preparation is necessary!
