Oxidised sterling silver perforated disc earrings
Stirling silver discs, hand drilled with pictures and shapes and held together with fine flame beaded wire. Each pair has been hand crafted by Rose Megirian in her Waylyup (Fremantle) studio.
The photographs are to be used as a guide, the nature of the process means that each item is unique and patterns and shapes differ from pair to pair. if you would like a photograph of the specific pair(s) currently available please get in touch.
Oxidised sterling silver has a lovely matte black surface with a gun metal lustre.
This treatment is called a patina which is a surface treatment and does not change the internal characteristics of the metal. As any surface treatment, it will wear off over time and use to show the metal underneath.
This will happen at varying speeds depending on how regularly the piece is worn and how much it rubs against clothes and skin.
Rings and bangles tend to wear the fastest, pendants a little slower, and earrings the slowest, but they will all wear back eventually.
When you purchase an oxidised piece, expect it to wear back and polish up, so relax and enjoy the way it's surface evolves over time.
This item comes in and is best stored in a padded box so that it doesn’t come into contact with any abrasive surfaces.
