Oak Leaf Keum Boo Earrings - 23.5k Gold on Silver Earrings
These oak leaf keum boo earrings were created using saw, hand chasing tools and accented with 23.5 karat gold by the ancient technique of keum boo. These fall laf earrings have a solid sterling fixed ear hook soldered to the back. These are not a cast item, these are one of a kind created using a real leaf as a pattern. I have oxidized these earrings to highlight the gold against the dark background. The process of keum boo leaves the gold firmly attached to the silver, this will not rub off when polishing. The leaves have well defined edges but all have been smoothed so there are not sharp edges
Material: Solid fine silver (.999) (tarnish resistant) sheet, leaf hand sawed, textured using chasing and repousse techniques. 23.5k Gold leaf, sterling ear wire
Size: 1 inches at the widest point of the leaf, Drop is 1.75 inches from the top
Finish: Oxidized shown
Each leaf was hand sawed from silver sheet then forged and textured using chasing and repousse techniques so no two leaves are exactly alike, just as mother nature intended. The leaves hang from stationary French hook ear wires created using sterling wire.
