Silver Beetle Earring


Sterling silver beetles with swirly curly antenna and a vertically striped carapace. I carved these out of jeweler's wax, cast them in sterling silver, soldered on their antenna and curled them up, added their little legs, and cast the whole thing agin to produce these adorable little beetles.


They are 5/8" wide by 1/2" long, with sterling silver posts and sterling silver earring backs.

I polished the castings, oxidized them, then rubbed them down with a mild abrasive to bring out all their stripey details, and finally brushed them to a bright satin finish.

Made by hand in Brooklyn and ships gift boxed. The paper lining in the gift box may be different than what is pictured, but it will be just as pretty.

Oxidized Silver

For my oxidized sterling silver pieces, I recommend using a silver polishing cloth to keep your jewelry bright.

I do NOT recommend a jewelry cleaning salvation like Tarn-x or the aluminum foil and baking soda method because it will remove all go the oxidization from your piece.


For my gold pieces, a silver polishing cloth will work as well.
