Every piece of jewelry in my shop is individually handcrafted by me in my studio. I take extra care to make sure the ends are completely smooth and rounded for added comfort. No sharp edges or burrs to cause tears or discomfort when inserting your piercing. My finishing process includes de-burring, filing, smoothing, tumbling, & polishing the mini hoops to a shine.
