A simple classic silver ring, this stacking ring is hand crafted with a cool hammer "faceted" surface. Handmade with sturdy 16 gauge sterling silver wire with slender oval surfaces hammered around the ring's surface to create a faceted design. Simple and sturdy, these stacking rings look great alone, but also are really pretty when stacked together in a group of other simple rings.

sizes 3 - 10 (American sizing)
These classic rings are made to last with the highest quality hand craftsmanship. I have a large collection of sizes in stock and ready to ship. (For those sizes that aren't in stock, they are made to order and shipped within 10 days of order.) Slight price increase for larger sizes reflects the increase in metal used in making the ring- larger sizes take more metal to make.

Sold as single ring, (price listed is per ring)
Shipped in a padded mailer, via US Postal Service, First Class mail, tracking included. shipping insurance is not included but can be added at checkout if desired.

**Please specify ring size when ordering**

The hoop is lightweight and flexible yet strong and is designed to fit snug on your nostril.As a nose ring hoop wearer since 1989, and I understand the importance of a good fit, so I offer two options for buying your hoops: either DIY sizing ( I send easy, detailed instructions) or, let me size it for you and choose the CUSTOM option.

DIY size and fit
IF YOU CHOOSE THE DIY OPTION I SEND A HOOP WITH The inner diameter of between 8-10 mm round (If you need a larger sized diameter please choose the custom size )Then YOU follow the instructions to trim and reshape your hoop to your exact fit. (NOTE: There are no size requests for DIY sized option. If you need a requested size please choose the custom fit option, thanks)

For CUSTOM SIZING, send your needed dimensions ( measure from your hole to the edge of your nose where you want the hoop to lay)and I will trim and shape the hoop to your specifications. Please note- measurements should be in millimeters, up to 13mm inner diameter PLEASE WATCH MY MEASURING VIDEO TO DETERMINE YOUR SIZE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HQgfmRvvFhY&t=186s

DIAMETER =the measurement across the entire mid point of the circle. Measured from the inside edges of the wire circle.

If you have any questions about how to fit your nose ring please feel free to send me a message via etsy- I check my messages daily and usually can help resolve issues in one or two messages.

ABOUT WIRE Thickness:
22 gauge is the measurement for the wire thickness- about the same as a sewing needle. This gauge is popular because of it's subtlety and flexibility, which can be an asset when you are putting in or taking out your hoop...
And Yes, they also can bend out of shape if they are not opened and closed properly This is why with each order I send important detailed information sheets which illustrate:
1) how I recommend to properly open and close your hoop
2) how to easily re-shape your hoops if they become distorted.
3) easy DIY custom sizing instructions ( I SEND THESE WITH ALL ORDERS)
4) a video link that shows you how to custom size the hoop using basic nail care tools.

this listing is for (1) one 22 gauge nose ring hoop- (the most slender wire hoop I sell)
made with 100% solid sterling silver wire (not plated) I send care and maintenance directions with every order.
These little nose rings are hand made one at a time, with attention to detail and quality please allow for very slight variations in each ring

Rock the rustic retro style in a cool little pair of flower stud earrings! Simple flower design stamped onto chunky little of sterling silver stud earrings. Like everything in my shop, these earrings are handmade, by me, in my little metalsmithing studio in Tucson Arizona. My passion for metalsmithing shows in the unique details and quality of each piece I send out to the world.

Gender neutral, these cool little stud earrings are great for any flower lover, Farmer John or Joan :-) I like their slight retro design, and that they aren't super feminine- Just cool little funky flowers on a nice chunk of silver

How they are made:
Made by hammering out a cast sphere of sterling silver into a small thick disc that's about 6-8mm in diameter (and about 1.5 mm thick) I then carefully hand stamp the design onto the little chunky disc. To finish, I solder on medium weight 20 gauge ear posts which I then spring harden, which straightens and strengthens the silver post.

Backed by comfy and secure rubber stoppers. (I send extra stoppers, because I know they can get misplaced easily...at least I know that I tend to misplace them lol)

amount:
This listing is for A PAIR of stud earrings

also sold as a single earring- the listing for a single of these flower studs is here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/250010684/single-chunky-little-flower-post-earring?ref=shop_home_active_14

size:
Approximate size 6-8mm diameter ( they are handmade and will all have slightly different shapes but will all be circular and measure within 6-8mm diameter)

shipping:
Packed in a padded mailer- shipped via US Postal Service, tracking included.

I send a shipping notification email when I ship out my orders, and I'm proud to be known for fast delivery (if you check out my feedback, you will find "fast" as one of the most used comments). If I have a piece in stock it will be shipped ASAP- often within 24 hours of order

In stock and ready to ship!

Searching for a simple sterling silver hoop earring to go with your nose ring or multiple pierced ears? Perhaps you are searching for a great pair of starter hoop earrings for a young earring wearer, a pair of hoops to hang charms off of, or need a discreet pair of hoops for work? Well, look no further, I have the earrings you are searching for right here! (I will even make special sizes on request)

I personally hand I make each piece by hand, with care and attention to detail- these hoops are made with solid sterling silver 20 gauge wire, which I spring harden and lightly hammer forge (to set their shape).

Handmade with a single piece of solid Sterling silver wire with no separate clutch back to lose- a simple post and eye-hook catch, which locks the earring in place.They are super comfortable and secure hoops- also great for wearing charms- slide them on or off without worrying about losing them! they are comfortable to sleep in, and keep in for as long as you want.

Finishes:
available either smooth/polished (default) or lightly hammered/polished (which gives them a little shimmery light play)

I make this model in S/M/L sizes. This is the listing for the SMALL pair- they are made to be nice and snug fitting (not tight- just close to the ear) They measure around 1/2 to 5/8 inches across the outside diameter of the hoop- (horizontal diameter)

As these are handmade one at a time please allow for very slight differences in shape and size- I do my best to make sure that they match as closely as possible, however, they will not be identical.

want them even smaller? no problem!
If you are looking for a tighter fit I can custom make them to your size specifications- simply make note of your size ( outside diameter of hoop in millimeters or inch) on the order. I will confirm your measurement for the special request, so you can be assured that you will get exactly what you need.

Sold as a pair, this listing is for 1 pair of SMALL SIZE (3/4 inch or less in diameter) 20 gauge sterling silver simple continuous hoop earrings

shipped in a padded mailer, I ship out my orders asap after I receive them and make the piece. (you can look at my feedback to see many comments about my fast shipping and high quality craftsmanship)

I use USPS first class mail, tracking included. I send a notification email when I ship each order, so my customers can know when to expect their orders. Shipping insurance is not included, but can be added at checkout if desired for a very reasonable rate.

Beautifully primitive bronze "cave horse" pin. Inspired by the cave drawings in Lascaux France. Made in cast bronze- the image is of a relief form of a running horse.

I used to ride in shows and eventing when I was a kid- And I would have loved to have had a cool handmade horse pin! All that seemed to be available were super shiny mass produced pins that really lacked any soul.(That's why I decided to design and make this limited edition pin)

stylized and elegant -
at 2" long and 1" tall, it is designed to be a perfect size for a unique stock pin for show attire or as a unique lapel pin.

Original handmade design cast in yellow bronze

Bronze antique style Chinese jumping horse pin. Indonesia ancient Chinese horse designs, this is a Cosmo's Moon exclusive design.

This is perfect as a gift or even as a "blue ribbon" award -

As a TROPHY:
if you are part of a pony club or horse show organization and are interested in purchasing multiple horse pins like this , my other horse designs OR if you want a custom horse pin design to use for year end awards or championship trophies, I can do that for you! I can create any piece in silver brass bronze or even gold ( prices will vary according to metals types and volume of your order)
Imagine how cool it would be to get an award that is original and that you can proudly wear! ( not just a trophy that collects dust in the tack room)
Contact me vie Etsy to discuss creating a beautiful trophy pin for your club.

How it was made:
This is a bronze casting of an original design that I handmade many years ago. The horse design was created with the repousse metals technique ( where you hammer one side and then flip it over to create the other side- it is a traditional silversmithing technique which creates volunteer me in metal sheet. It's really work intensive but satisfying to do)

There is a standard nickel silver pin back soldered onto the back of the piece.

This is a lapel pin- it's measurements can be seen in the images posted

I ship via US postal service-this pin is in stock and ready to ship! I will send an email notification with tracking information when it is put in the mail ( typically within 1-3 days after order is complete)

Looking for a perfectly tiny Sterling silver nose ring? You found it here! This is a perfectly petite 1-2 mm seed of sterling silver on a slender 22gauge L shaped post. A simple little nose ring stud, made for us nose ring wearers who want a discreet and comfortable nose ring stud for everyday!

This is the listing for my smallest size nose ring stud- (it is the smaller of the two shown in the detail image with the millimeter ruler- the larger one is listed in my shop too, it has a 2.5 - 3 mm silver sphere on a 20 gauge L shaped post)

Why I make great nose rings:
Having been a nose ring wearer for more than 30 years I am very familiar with the sorry excuses for nose rings that are commonly available, too big, too shiny, too heavy, and questionable metal..

I know how hard it is to find nose rings that are sized right, finding mostly those big ones make you feel like a pirate, or having the feeling that the nose ring is wearing you!
This is why I started making my line of silver nose ring studs and hoops; to have the option of high quality handmade nose jewelry that fits your face, and does what it's supposed to do: be a beautiful accent to your features, and not overpower them.

This "tiny seed" style nose ring is handmade with a tiny ball of silver fused on a wire post. Neat and discreet, a tiny 1-2 mm dot of Sterling silver just big enough to be noticed ( and not slip through your pierced hole) a pretty little seed of silver on a slender 22 gauge post.

The post is bent approximately 4-5 mm below the silver ball ( please note on your order if you know your nostril thickness- especially if you have thick skin) and the tail end of the wire is curved in an arch for comfort.

These are handmade in Sterling silver- please allow for very slight variations in the fused bead.

Packed in a padded mailer and shipped out daily ( excluding Sundays and Holidays) I ship using USPS first class service, tracking included. Shipping insurance can be added at checkout if desired.

Thank you for shopping at my shop, and for supporting independent artists- I'm on a mission to prove that they really DO make things the way they used to!

Add a bit color to your stack ring collection with this fun silver and copper twist ring!

Available in size 3 - 10 (US ring sizing), Most sizes are in stock. If not in stock, they are made to order within 2 weeks of order. While I do need to take the time to make my work properly, (with excellent craftsmanship) I tend to make and ship much faster than my estimated quote- (see my feedback for comments on my speedy service)

This twist ring is made with two lengths of 20 gauge sterling and copper wire, twisted together, soldered, formed and work hardened (in order to make ring durable and help it keep its roundness) then antiqued (to bring out the twist detail) and tumble polished.

The copper will darken with age- and can be brought back to bright copper - simply scrub the ring with an abrasive scrubbie to take off the oxidization and return it to a bright copper color!

please remember to check YOUR SIZE on the order form at checkout. (slight Price variations are due to material increase with larger sizes)

handmade with care in Tucson Arizona

************************************************************************************************
Important Notes for newbie hoop wearers:
If you are used to a thinner gauge for your nose ring or are not used to wearing hoops you may want to try a 22 gauge dainty hoop first. 22 Gauge is slightly thinner, which may be more comfortable for anyone who is not used to wearing a nose hoop.
You will find the 22 gauge nose hoop listed in my shop here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/82982832/dainty-and-snug-22-gauge-silver-nose
