Oval earrings made with keum-boo technique from sterling silver and gold foil.
Modern, geometric and simple.
They are not as perfect as I would like them to be, so I am selling them for discounted price.
Keum-boo is an ancient Korean technique used to apply thin sheets (foil) of gold to silver. Traditionally, this technique is accomplished by first heat treating a surface of sterling silver to bring up a thin layer of fine silver. Then 24 carat gold foil is applied with heat and pressure. The resulting bond is permanent.
These earrings are made as described above – with heat treated sterling silver and 24k gold (pure gold) foil.
They are oxidized to enhance the contrast. Back of the earrings is black/dark grey.
Dimensions: ovals 20 x 15 mm (0.8 x 0.6 in.), full length 35 mm (1.4 in.)
