These rectangular shaped earrings are made of sterling silver (with a patina applied) and 24k gold. The gold is applied as a foil using the ancient process of Keum Boo. The earrings are approximately 32x10mm.
(Keum Boo is an ancient Korean process of applying gold to metal using heat and friction.)
I make all aspects of this piece myself. I purchase the rough turquoise material and cut, shape and polish it. My silver and gold metals are purchase flat and managed to fit the piece as I have designed it.
