item of the week
this week's item of the week... small preface post earrings. by now you probably know the story of the preface shape and how it came to be a few years back. this year i got into soldering posts on earrings and began making more post styles than my usual circular earwires. i thought for a long time that posts were a pain, but then my friend and fellow jeweler, aran, told me about the magic of these special standup cross-lock tweezers. they act as a third hand, firmly holding a post at a perfect 90 degrees just where it needs to be on the earring. genius! (thanks, aran!) now i can't get enough of posts. you'll find these earrings in the preface collection in my shop.
please enjoy 20% of the small preface post earrings for the week, july 22-28 (regularly $72, on sale for $57.60)
thanks for reading.
p.s. here are the tweezers. if you're a jeweler, i highly recommend getting a pair. they run about $7.
