Hamlet Earrings - To Be Or Not To Be - Shakespeare Quote

16.00

"To be, or not to be, that is the question."

Recognize that famous quote from William Shakespeare’s Hamlet? Show off your theatrical side with these handmade earrings.

To create these literary earrings, I hand stamped the words "to be" and "not to be" on U.S.-made metal discs. I brushed the metal discs to give them a subtle texture. The discs are made with a tin-based metal alloy that is heavier than aluminum.

Ear wires:
Sterling silver ear wires often work well for people who have sensitive skin or allergies. The silver coating on cheaper silver-plated ear wires will eventually wear away and expose the base metal below. You do not need to worry about that with real sterling silver. Copper discs come with niobium (hypoallergenic) ear wires.

Length: 1 5/8" (4.12 cm)

Earring length is always measured from the top of the ear wire (the part that will be in your ear) to the end of the earring.

Technique: Hand stamped
Hand stamped items uses hand tools (a hammer and steel stamps) to add the letters and numbers one at a time. No lasers or machines! Because of the hand tools, you may notice light hammer marks or a brushed (not smooth) texture on the metal, particularly on the back.
