Large Silver Ginkgo Earrings
Handmade from impressions of a real ginkgo leaves impressed into fine silver. These beautiful leaves dangle from hand forged sterling silver ear wires. The earrings were given a darkening patina, and then polished to a high shine; leaving the patina in the recesses of the design allows it to really stand out.
Length is 1 3/8, including ear wire, and 1 1/4 wide.
Sterling silver ear wires.
Fine silver clay consists of fine silver particles and an organic binder. After forming, drying and refining the piece is fired in a kiln. During this time the binder burns off and the result is a piece that is .999 pure silver.
