The sleeper is hinged and tightly clips closed. The wire is 1mm (18 gauge) diameter so can feel tight if you are used to thinner standard earring wires. Inner diameter of the hoop is 8mm. You open and close by pulling either side of the hinge to avoid twisting and loosening it.
If you need a thinner hoop, I have different styles available - just contact me.
My mandala collection began with inspiration Tibetan Buddhist Thanka paintings and traditional motifs used to decorate Buddhist temples, particularly in Sri Lankan temples during my time living there. My starting point was lots of drawing and variations of the combinations and designs and sizes. I then handmade my favourites using individual pieces of wire, soldering every joint. For this mandala design, it is difficult using traditional methods so I designed the piece using a 3d design program, which then can be 3d printed in a special detailed wax. Once I was happy with the design I was then able to make a mould which could be used for lost wax casting. With the raw casting I have to file, polish and finish the piece. Each piece is inspected carefully by me to ensure a fine finish with no casting marks or flaws. They are all stamped with my unique hallmark, SB, and metal purity.
The listing is for this exact piece, which is already finished and ready to ship.
