The sun and stars: they shine day and night. Let these vintage-cut star sapphire sunburst earrings remind you that there is always light, even in darkness.

My Process:

To create my one-of-a-kind textures, I use heat, no solder, to fuse the hand-cut silver pieces to its sterling silver base. Next I very carefully soldered the strips of gold. Being that I had two domed sunburst layers, I soldered a spacer in between each layer to give extra dimension.  Then came the soldering of the drop, the tube settings, and the posts.  After a patina application and hand polish, I securely set the star sapphires to ensure durability.  Despite their size, they are surprisingly lightweight.
