These fabulous earrings were made completely by hand based on an Archimedes spiral.
These earrings measure approximately 2 1/4 inches top to bottom, and 1 3/4 inches side to side.
I make all our ear wires by hand using 925 sterling silver.
Nerd Alert!! Here is a bit from Wikipedia about my man Archimedes:
Archimedes of Syracuse (/ˌɑːkɪˈmiːdiːz/; Greek: Ἀρχιμήδης; c. 287 – c. 212 BC) was a Greek mathematician, physicist, engineer, inventor, and astronomer. Although few details of his life are known, he is regarded as one of the leading scientists in classical antiquity. Generally considered the greatest mathematician of antiquity and one of the greatest of all time, Archimedes anticipated modern calculus and analysis by applying concepts of infinitesimals and the method of exhaustion to derive and rigorously prove a range of geometrical theorems, including the area of a circle, the surface area and volume of a sphere, and the area under a parabola.
What a guy. If you want to read more about his fascinating work, here is the full article https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Archimedes
