Tudor Rose & Shot

Here are some more tudor rose earrings, this time with stones. The larger pairs have (l to r upper) turquoise and citron chyrsoprase. The smaller pair has garnet.

The larger pairs (~ an inch across) are in the simplified style. The smaller pair (~ 3/4 inch) is in the original style and has ten shot dispersed into the design. Shot are solid bits of sterling silver melted and pulled into spheres by the surface tension of the molten metal. They are named after similar bits, lead or steel usually, used as firearm projectiles.

These earrings all have the french-kidney wires which we make. These wires are both wrapped onto the earring and provided with a safety hook to help guard against loss.

The usual price for the simplified tudor rose earrings with stones is $50 and for the original style is $90. Of course, whenever you’re talking including stones, it’s possible to make choices which might add considerably to price.

All can be ordered small, medium or large sized. (Of which small and medium are pictured here, with large being ~ 1 1/4 inch across.)

As with all chassed pieces, reflection is a constant annoyance for the photography, and, as usual when I encounter such an impediment in this bloggy endeavor, I simply choose to ignore it.
