I handcarved these tiny ladybug earrings from recycled sterling silver into their final shapes. Each of their miniature spots was cut from sterling silver sheet and soldered onto their backs. I gave them little eyes, antennae, and a little line down their backs to separate their spotted wings. Because of their size I needed to use a pin head to add darkness to their spots, faces, antennae, and wing lines! After they were made and darkened I then hand polished them again so that they shined in special places.
Since each of these little bugs is handmade they will all differ a bit from each other giving them personality. They are about .5 inches long even with their antennae. They are made entirely from sterling silver, including the earring posts and butterfly back closures.
Each of my pieces comes to you in a sweetly decorated gift box making them perfect for gift giving or as a nice gift for yourself. Custom made to order pieces are created for you in 1-2 weeks and then they are mailed off to you!
