Little Blossom Keum Boo (Gold) and Silver EarringsKBLBS
Little tiny golden flowers, they could be cherry blossom or forget-me-nots, on simple silver ear wires. These little flowers are created using the ancient korean technique of Keum Boo (literally meaning 'attached gold' where 24K gold foil is applied to heated silver. Heat and pressure along with the molecular similarities of gold and silver allow the two metals to form a permanent diffusion bond or little goblins sew it together, I'm not sure which, it looks like magic every time I do it!
However it's attached, it's not coming off and it's thicker than gold plating. Once I've added the gold I texture and handcut the sheet before shaping and securely soldering to a sterling silver ear wire. There are several finishing and polishing stages before I carefully match a pair for you.
The little flowers measure approximately 9mm across
Stud Earrings - with an 11mm sterling silver post and sterling silver butterfly back (you might like to pair these studs with the Maxine Earring Enhancers which you can see in the final image)
Hook Earrings - The total drop of these earrings is 18mm, they'll sit just below your earlobes. These will come with silicon stoppers as no one likes losing an earring
Long Threader - The total drop of these earrings is approximately 65mm, the flowers sit on your earlobe, just like a stud, with the sterling silver ear wire extending down behind your ear. These also come with silicon stoppers, just in case
Both the silver sheet and ear wire are 100% recycled silver
