Coffee Bean Studs
These sweet little coffee bean studs are just the thing every coffee lover needs!
I keep all the bits and pieces from my projects, and melt those pieces into tiny silver balls, medium size balls to use in a shot plate to make embellishments and even larger ones that form these little beans. I melt a pile of silver and while it’s still red hot and molten, I manipulate the metal with a titanium pick. The cracks and bumps are different on each bean, just like the real thing. Once formed, I refine the back a bit and add sterling silver posts and sterling silver butterfly backs.
The earring pictured here will not be the exact pair you get. I make a pile of coffee beans at once, and then match them up by size to make a pair. They will all vary a bit in size and appearance. Rest assured, your pair will be just as fabulous as these ones!
