Light and breezy, these earrings are inspired and sketched from real leaves and formed in solid 22 karat gold, using chasing and repousse techniques that give movement and dimension. Granulated 18 karat ear wires add tiny detail. Fabricated one at a time, no two leaves are exactly alike, just as in nature. The richness of 22k gold is beautiful for a special event, wedding or when you just want to feel special!
Each one starts with a flat sheet of gold, leaves are drawn on a sheet of metal, using a variety of tiny punches, the shape of the leaf is formed, first from the back (repousse). It then gets flipped over and more detail is added from the front (chasing). It is a long process that can take several days, moving from back to front to refine the shapes.
Due to the handmade nature of the earrings, each one will be slightly unique and may vary slightly in size from the photos. Leaves measure 1 inch long and 1/2 inch wide.
Ear wires are granulated 18K gold for extra durability.
Signed on the back.
