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 35x10mm. The hammered patterning is applied by hand.
I acquire all my metal as flat pieces or coiled wire. I cut, shape, refine and polish all of my work by hand using bench tools in my studio. Cleaning of sterling silver and 14k or 24k gold should be done with care following the directions on commercially available products. All fine jewelry should be treated carefully.
All hand-crafted jewelry are one of a kind pieces. Exact duplications are rarely possible. I am happy to work with you if you have a particular design you would like to see achieved.
