Handmade minimalist, elegant stud earrings. A hand-formed sterling silver oval highlighted with 24 K gold using the Korean technique keum boo.
The earrings have been oxidized and the sterling is recycled. The process of keum boo is fusing a layer of pure gold on a surface and achieving a permanent bond. I use sterling silver as a base metal to layer with the 24K gold. The stud is made of sterling silver.
The earrings come with sterling silver backs in a gift box.
measurements: 1.12" X .32"
"I approach my craft with 15 years of experience using traditional and time-honored metalsmithing traditions in my upstate NY studio. Caring for the environment is a keystone of my practice. I source my metals from companies that provide recycled material. Sourcing from sustainable companies that reclaim and process fine metals means that my materials are not newly mined, which makes for an eco-friendly practice." Lise Bouvet, Ithaca NY
