These 18k and 14k (solid) Gold Artisan earrings are totally awesome! I simply could not capture the beauty and the shine of them in the photo. These earrings will make for an incredible gift for your loved one, or for yourself!!, and would easily retail for well over $300 in a jewelry store. The matching necklace is also available in my shop, as seen in the last 4 photos.
I was inspired by a recent museum visit where I saw high carat gold jewelry handcrafted by the ancient Romans, Greeks, and Egyptians. I fell in love with the jewelry and wanted to capture the handcrafted look in that rich yellow color, thus I used 18k gold oval discs, (yes, they are 100% real gold, not plated or filled ).
Details: 1) (2) 18k yellow gold 5x15mm oblong discs, hand hammered and polished 2) 14k yellow gold lever back ear wires 3) Overall earring length is 30mm, (1 1/4")
Technique: Once I flattened and hammered the ovals I drilled a hole on each end. With professional tools I brought the hammered ovals back up to a high polish. I then dropped them from the 14k gold lever back ear wires.
These earrings can be customized in many ways, just ask!
