Jewelry Trends - Large Black & White Gold Hoop Earrings New York Fashion Week 2016

Jewelry Trends: Large White Gold Hoop Earrings

Everyone has been talking about big, bold, white and gold on the runways this past week in New York. 

During the past month, we have been working on a custom set of large white gold hoop earrings with black obsidian stone accents for a customer of ours. Here is a little behind the scenes look at the process...

 Coming up with a new design for a customer

First, we start sketching out a couple of design ideas to get our creative juices flowing.  We then send the customer these ideas to see which style he likes best. 

He selected the infinity hoop style with accent beads (second drawing from the left).

Behind the scenes in the Metal Pressions shop!

And now the production! We start off with some gold wire, hand shape it into the geometrical eye shaped components (they also look like infinity symbols to me) and soldered them together to make one long piece.

 

After a bit of finishing, we formed the wire into a Hoop Shape. 

(Side Note: This design would also make a great cuff bracelet too!)

 

After forming the hoops, we created headpins for each black obsidian bead and soldered those onto the gold wire.

We then hand formed the ear wires and attached them so that the hoops dangle perfectly.

 And Voila!

A gorgeous pair of white gold hoop earrings that can be worn everyday! 

You can find these beauties in our Etsy shop

Silver Money Clip - Personalized Valentine's Day Gift Idea

A Little Hemingway Goes A Long Way

It's true that your guy may not want jewelry or accessories customized with too much gooshy stuff. However, I think all guys can appreciate a quote by Hemingway that has a little but of humor.

This quote says:

Maybe...you'll fall in love with me all over again."
"Hell," I said, "I love you enough now.
What do you want to do? Ruin me?"
"Yes. I want to ruin you."
"Good," I said.
"That's what I want too."
