New earring studs from my handmade granulated jewelry collection

Last week I looked at my Etsy shop and as I viewd my granulated earrings, thought to myself:  "time to create something new!". Sometimes the "New" is a very simple idea such as just combining two existing pieces together. I like to set one form next to the other and see how they look together. It is always fun to search for new combinations. 
This time I decided on a new pair of ear studs with two granulated circles, in different sizes. I soldered one on top of the other, and somehow they look like a granulated wheel. I then gold plated them with Rose gold. The granules have a shiny polish while the background is satin in order to create a contrast.
Diameter of each stud is 0.9" (about 22mm)
Here is the result of my experiment:



Rose gold ear studs - Granulated wheels.


There is, of course, an option of handcrafting them in  sterling silver without the gold plate or with yellow gold.  


Thank you for watching.
Have a great weekend!
