Post Earrings

My latest project this week has been making post earrings using jewels, brass settings and 14K gold fill posts.
I solder the post to the back of one of the brass settings, first carefully drilling a little cup in the back of the settings to hold the post more securely. Then the metal is pickled, the jewels are set, and everything is put into the tumbler for shine and strength.

I'm really happy with how these turned out, and will be listing them in my shop in the next few days.
