Sand Dollar Earrings

Sand Dollar Earrings


We used to visit Charleston, South Carolina often when I was young, and my grandparents would always take us to the beach. I don’t remember finding any sand dollars on the beach myself, but I did have quite the collection from the shops we passed! Lots of very fond memories…

These earrings were lovingly created entirely by hand, using an ancient technique called chasing and repousse. This 5000 year old technique uses small, specialized tools and a hammer to push and form the metal, either from the front of the piece or from behind. This is a time-intensive, meditative technique, which produces a unique result.

The earrings are 1-1/4 inches long and hang from handmade sterling silver earwires.
