    Default Some Simple Argentium Ear Hoops and a Pinkie Ring.

    When I completed my second acrylic suite, which you can see in my album, I decided to add a pair of Argentium ear hoops to wear with it on less jolly occasions.

    So I drew down some triangular wire, and after forming the rings, I turned up one of the ends, rather than cutting it away, to make a space for the ear lobes.
    This also created an unexpected detail and presented a better area for soldering the posts.

    The renaming piece of wire left over, I drew down further to make a ring for a little finger. Another Request.

    What a relief to be back in the land of silver.

    Triangular wire for hoops 2.50mm, for ring 1.8mm.
    Diameter of hoops, 20.00 mm, of ring 14.80 (size H ish) Dennis.

    Ear hoops are some thing different, good to see some one else uses Argentium sometimes I think I am the only one

    Very nice Dennis although I was intrigued by the title which came up shortened as ear hoops and a pinkie

    I'd wear those in a heartbeat Dennis - and I'm incredibly fussy about earrings, especially now that I can only wear a very limited range of styles after various neck surgeries.

    Bob - I use a LOT of argentium

    Argentium does just look "nicer" than ordinary sterling silver, to my eye.

    What's the stone in the ring?

    I don't know. Acrylic is the only thing you mention. The pic's really low rez, so I don't know.
