Did you know that Ginkgo is one of the oldest living tree species? The ginkgo leaf is one of beauty. It appears so delicate and is unlike most leaves.
These earrings are hand forged from sterling silver sheet metal. The ginkgo leaf shape is sawed out, filed, and textured. The leaves are forged to create the wavy appearance, and oxidized to bring out the detail in the texture. Each leaf is 36mm x 26mm and dangles from sterling silver French style earwires. The total length of the earrings is 1 3/4" (43mm).
The earrings are hand crafted, with care, in my studio, from sterling silver.
