Copper and silver twisted together form a unique nose ring hoop! Looking for an interesting and beautiful nose ring? This style is made of two strands of 22 g wire: one sterling silver and the other copper. These two metals are twisted together and tapered to a 20 gauge post (part that goes through your piercing)

Looking for a snug fit? a nose ring that (finally) fits exactly the way you want? I make these with an approximately 9-10 mm inner diameter, and then give customers easy instructions on how to trim the hoop to your exact size and fit.

After all, humans are unique: we all have different noses, and different piercing sites and fit preferences...It's impossible to make a one size fits all hoop, so I give you the power to custom fit your hoop! With each nose ring hoop order I send my super easy DIY custom sizing instructions with your order. I've even uploaded a short instructional video on youtube, where you can watch me demonstrate how to size your new hoop using common manicure tools everyone has at home.

Are you wondering if 10 mm is a big enough diameter to start with? To measure for your piercing fit see the last image in this listing- it shows approximately how you should measure for your correct fit

This twisted silver and copper hoop is finished with a darkened silver "antique" finish to highlight the twisted pattern in the wires

**I make these hoops one by one, they are completely handmade, please allow for slight variations in twist and size

Mailed in a padded envelope with contact information, video link and written instructions. US postal service first class mail, tracking included. shipping insurance can be added at checkout.

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!

Simple classics in a pair of little silver bead post earrings. These are sweet and simple, with solid silver sphere soldered on a sterling silver 20 gauge post. These little treasures are handmade, a "pair" will be very similar in shape and size, but not identical.

Tumble polished to a lustrous finish, these earrings have a clean earthy feel. They don't have the appearance of factory made jewelry (that awful slick shine that looks and feels so artificial) They have a lustrous tumbled finish and clean, professionally crafted quality.

They measure approximately 2.75 millimeters round (see photo comparison with a quarter to illustrate scale) and are finished with a sterling silver post back, and a comfy pair of little rubber stoppers.

Designed for everyone: men, women, teens...For kids these are classic little silver earrings. Sweet as bridesmaid/ wedding party gifts, great for those who work in a conservative dress world, and have Military, uniformed or school dress requirements. Also great for people (like me) who have multiple ear piercings (they are great for those holes you want to keep open, but don't want dangles)

As with all of the work I have in my shop, these are 100% made by hand in my sweet garden studio in central Tucson Arizona (pictured). Thank you for your support and for shopping for handmade artisan jewelry.

Looking for a simple, snug fitting silver nose ring hoop that is just a bit thicker than my 22 gauge dainty hoop? Here it is! This Nose ring hoop is made from spring hardened 20 gauge solid sterling silver wire. The hoop has a small flat ball of silver at the end of the hoop (which acts as a stopper to keep it from spinning out of your piercing.)

As a nose ring hoop wearer since 1989, and I understand the importance of a good fit. That's why I send a link to my easy DIY nose ring hoop sizing instruction video I made for my customers so you can fit your hoop to your exact size. (using basic nail care tools)

You can easily maintain a round hoop or reform a hoop that is already bent - I send detailed directions with your order. (These Maintenance techniques are also demonstrated on the video)

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

You found it! That perfect dainty and snug little sterling silver nose ring! This slender nose ring hoop is made from spring hardened 22 gauge sterling silver wire. The hoop is lightweight and flexible yet strong and is designed to fit snug on your nostril.

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- the hoop is slender, so it doesn't stick out like a thicker gauge (making you feel like a pirate- which isn't the look that everyone is going for)

22 gauge wire is slender and can bend easily, which can be an asset when you are putting in or taking out your hoop...

Yes, they also can bend out of shape if they are not opened and closed properly This is why with each order I send 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
4) a video link that shows you how to custom size the hoop using basic nail care tools.

size and fit:
I send a hoop that will be on the large size ( about 7-9 mm inner diameter) and include super easy DIY trimming and fitting instructions with every order. This way, you can trim it to your preferred fit! I also include a link to my instruction video along with my contact info if you have any questions about your new hoop.
If you need a larger inner diameter than 7-9 mm please send me a message on your order, with the measurement you need. I will make an XL size for you, also on the large size, so you can trim it to your exact desired fit.

How to know what size you might need? please look at the fifth image of this listing- it shows where you need to measure to figure out your diameter needs, (any questions on this please feel free to send me a message via etsy!)

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) 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, Satisfaction Guaranteed.

Gorgeous bright blue color play in this unique gemstone. Labradorite is a stone that has light play; it changes radiance with movement of the stone. This large oval cabochon has stunning brilliant blues and it captures light 85% of its body( which means that it has very little flat/grayish viewpoints- the stone is quite vivid!) the high quality black leather cord upon which the pendant is strung measures approximately 18 inches long. The clasp is a sturdy handmade hook and eye clasp with extra links to make the length adjustable!

I set this beauty in a simple sterling and fine silver bezel setting- I kept the metalwork simple to allow for the brilliance of the real star of the show. The light play of Labradorite echoes the drama of the aurora borealis northern lights of the stone's origins in Labrador.

This piece is packed in a small jewelry box which is protectively wrapped and sent in a padded mailer. Tracking is included in shipping ( I send an email with tracking info when I ship pieces to their new homes.) shipping insurance is not included, but you can easily add it at checkout. I highly recommend shipping insurance on this and my other handmade unique works of art.

If you have questions about this or any other piece in cosmo's moon, please feel free to ask! I am easy to work with and I try to return inquiries asap - weekdays or weekends.
