Our ear studs "Botón", translated "button" in english, are made of high-quality sterling silver 0.925 and guaranteed to be free of nickel. Aaron the creator of these beauties, to create the shape of this piece, the craftsman relied on the front arched silver plate. to achieve the form, the sheet is bent slightly bellied and soldered onto a second, flat silver plate. In this way, the pattern is slightly darker due to the hollow space behind it and at the same time the ear studs offers a high wearing comfort due to its light weight. Aaron was initially an accountant, but he switched to the art of silver because he needed money quickly for an urgent operation for his father. Unfortunately, the silver industry in Taxco is no longer as lucrative as it used to be years ago. Nowadays it is hard to earn enough money for a "good" living. He would like to work as again as an accountant, but because he stopped working for so many years, it is very hard to get a job now. Aaron´s personality is very "easy going" which makes him easy to work with. He is nice and open-minded. Apart from the silver business, he also inherited the tradition and recipes to creat ice-cream and of what we know in Mexico as "bolis"- ice made of different natural fruit flavour. Bolis are so famous in the small cities, that children go out on the street as soon as the "boli man" rings the bell. Aaron is a family person. His pride is his wife and his daughter, who was able to study the silver work. In pakilia our primary goal is to give fair value to the work of artisans. The passion and love that each piece has is invaluable, but without a doubt we seek that each one of these pieces reaches the right person, who will give, the value it piece deserves. All our ear studs come with surgical steel earring backs and are therefore particularly easy to use and resistant to allergies. The jewelery is delivered by us in a beautiful pakilia jewelery case suitable for storing.
