Handcrafted, one of a kind, these sterling silver earrings with 8mm Aventurine stones are embellished with 22K gold.
The 22K gold foil is fused to the silver using an ancient Korean metal smithing technique called” Keum bu”. The technique uses high karat 22-24K gold foil, rolled into thin sheets, much thicker than gold leaf, and carefully fused to the the silver using heat. After fusing the piece is dipped into a patina solution , turning the silver black and then polished with a special wax.
I design and handcrafted each pair of earrings in my Ajo Arizona studio. I hope they give you joy wearing them!
