Handmade Trove: Sterling Silver Spiral Earrings by Sid Kassidy, Master Jeweler

If you can't tell by my drawings, I am a fan of swirls. They became a permanent part of my handwriting style during my penpalling days in grade school. Even when I'm just scribbling the grocery list, the tails of letters end enthusiastically in curls.

Sterling Silver Spiral Earrings by Sid KassidyWhen master jeweler, Sid Kassidy, offered to send me metal jewelry from her handmade shop, my heart did somersaults over the sterling silver spiral earrings to the right. She also offers spiral stud earrings, but I chose the long design so they'd make a strong statement and not get hidden by my hair. These are the longest earrings I've ever owned with post backs instead of ear hooks - they stay in place instead of swinging, which helps when walking against the spring wind. The earrings are hand-forged and fused from an alloy of 925 sterling silver and pewter to prevent tarnishing. The metal smith then hammered and brushed the metal to give it that unique finish.
