    That worked then

    Do you mean the body of the earring, rather than the pinstem?

    Yes, the face of the earring typically a cutout shape: circle, horses head, etc

    I use a variety of thicknesses, depending on what I'm making. Sometimes its .5mm - but can be up to 1mm thick.

    I'd love to comment but have not done that many ! I am everywhere atm as only learning and trying everything! I think if I do smth then I would be aiming for mid thickness not too thin and not too heavy,,, but again depends on design too...

    The problem is that we all have different stud earrings in mind: some with backplates for tube set stones, some with cut outs of animals etc, some with wire work and some with castings.
    The question is rather like 'how long is a piece of string',the answer being 'this long'. Dennis

    I was thinking cut outs/ flat pieces

    OK, I dropped mine into the mix and stirred it. Kind regards, Dennis.

    The only ones i've made so far have been little copper oak leafs that were cut from 0.7mm sheet - mostly because thats what I had available rather than by design. They feel sturdy enough without looking too bulky, but they could probably go a little finer for a really delicate look.
