Updated knot earrings!
1. They're now soldered! I previously used epoxy to bond the knot to the post, mostly due to the irregular surface join. The epoxies I use are self-leveling and generally do a great job of filling those gaps, but when it came to larger knots with smaller pads and posts, the knots would separate from the pad much too easily. So, I've experimented with soldered versions with great success!
2. Solid gold! Coming soon are my knot earrings in solid 10k/14k gold. The first ones will likely be 10k knots on gold-filled posts, but 14k posts are coming soon.
I'm very excited to offer these improved designs and new metals, and would love feedback on them. If you happen to purchase a pair once they are listed, please let me know what you think of them!
