Keum-boo Gold and Fine Silver Teardrop Earrings
Keum-Boo is the ancient art of attaching gold foil to fine silver. The gold is rolled to an exact thickness to bond to the fine silver.
This is the technique I used to make these elegant earrings. I left these earrings bright silver and gold. The precious metals are hammer textured leaving tiny facets that reflect the light all round. Then they have been slightly curved for even more impact. The backs have a nice brushed finish.
The pair hang on handmade sterling silver ear wires and measure 1 5/8" in length total by 7/8" at their widest point.
These stunning earrings are completely handmade, original and one of a kind.
