The Swirl nose screw and ear studs are simple enough to wear every day, or even to leave in all the time. Like the rest of the Primitive Series, these are created using only techniques that have been around as long as wire itself!
I recently read that it is thought that the first metal jewelry was probably gold. The reasoning? That gold is sometimes found in nuggets on the surface and that would be straightforward to turn into jewelry. When you compare that to silver, which is buried deep and seamed in ore that would have to be smelted away before it could be worked into jewelry, that makes sense!
