These are also a great way to enhance your favorite heirloom earrings, upgrade or replace the ear hooks on your new earrings, add them to your own earring designs, also a great gift for the jewelry crafter or maker on your list. Individually handmade from 14/20 gold filled (nickel free and hypoallergenic) with sturdy 20g wire. These will last you for years to come.

Handmade and hammered french ear wires. The ends have been sanded and smoothed for a nice comfortable fit. They are also tumbled for several hours to give them added strength and shine.

Why I choose to use 14/20 gold filled and what it means:

Gold filled is made by using heat and pressure to fuse a layer of solid Gold onto a base metal (usually brass). I use 14/20 gold filled wire to create my pieces. What that means is that 1/20 (5%) of the metal weight is 14 karat solid gold, the same applies to 12/20 gold filled, which would contain 1/20 (5%) of 12 karat gold and so on.. I choose to work with 14/20 gold filled because of it's beautiful rich color and the fact that is wears just like real gold. It has beauty, durability, and strength. It is a quality alternative to solid gold at an affordable price.
