These custom runic earrings are handcrafted from .999 pure silver, with your choice of Elder Futhark Runes.
These little nuggets began as fine (99.9%) silver scrap or bits of wire. The metal is heated until a molten ball is formed. Then I hammer it out into the little nuggets you see now.
Sterling silver posts are securely soldered to the backs. I have added an oxidized patina to show off their detail and character, with a brushed finish.
Medium weight sterling post nuts are included.
Size: Given the unique nature of handmade items, sizes may vary slightly. Average size will be 5mm x 1.5mm thick.
Because these silver rune earrings are all handmade and hand melted, they will not always be perfectly round. Some will be more of a "nugget" type shape.
NOTE: For mixed sets, please specify second rune choice in the "message" box upon checkout.
What are the runes?
Runes come from a time when the world was still perceived as a magical place. And when people still felt a connection to it. Runes were inscribed onto helmets, swords, sacred objects and stones or fragments of wood as dedications of hope and desire, power, and healing.
For these earrings I use custom made steel jewelry stamps in Elder Futhark runes. The ancient and mystical runes of Northern Europe are potent symbols of inspiration.
